An Omaha police officer has been placed on paid administrative leave following a videotaped arrest that is at the center of an excessive force allegation.
Omaha Police Chief Todd Schmaderer last week had temporarily reassigned three officers involved in the arrest, and vowed to oversee a thorough investigation of alleged brutality in the arrest of three men near 33rd and Seward Streets.
