Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine will hold a press conference at 1:30 p.m. today to announce his decision on possible criminal charges against four Omaha police officers fired as a result of controversial arrests near 33rd and Seward Streets.
The March 21 incident was captured on video and led to allegations that excessive force was used in Octavious Johnson's arrest. Questions also were raised about whether officers had grounds to enter the family's home after they chased 23-year-old Juaquez Johnson inside.
