CHICAGO (WLS) -- A former Chicago police officer charged after video captured a confrontation on a lakefront beach is expected to enter a plea Thursday.
Former officer Bruce Dyker was seen on video getting in a physical confrontation with Nikkita Brown, who was walking her dog on the beach at the time on Aug. 28, 2021.
The video shows Dyker grabbing Brown after telling her to leave the beach since it was closed. The officer was also seen on video telling others to leave the beach before approaching Brown.
Attorneys for the woman believe the encounter was an "obvious case of racial profiling."
