The Minnesota Court of Appeals on Tuesday rejected the city of Duluth's attempt to fire a police officer for dragging a man along the floor by his handcuffs, saying that the officer should keep his job despite having been fired by the agency.

According to the Star Tribune, the city and the police union are at odds over what constitutes fair discipline for officer Adam Huot who was seen on body-worn camera dragging a suspect by his handcuffs following an arrest.

The man had fallen to the ground and said, "I ain't gonna make it easy for you guys."

Huot then grabbed handcuffs and dragged the subject about 100 feet to an elevator.
