Charge Lowered Against Woman in Superior Video

Created: 01/30/2014 4:26 PM WDIO.com

Prosecutors have reduced the charge against a Superior woman seen being arrested in a police "dashcam" video.

Natasha Lancour had been charged with felony battery of an officer.  Lancour's attorney, Richard Gondik, said District Attorney Dan Blank told him the charge will be amended to misdemeanor resisting an officer.

Lancour is scheduled to appear in court Friday afternoon.

Video from a police dashboard camera shows Officer Gothner's arrest of Lancour outside of Keyport Lounge on Jan. 5.  In his police report, Gothner wrote that Lancour struck and scratched him during the incident, and he responded with a closed fist punch to her face.

Lancour alleges Gothner used excessive force.

The Wisconsin Department of Justice is overseeing an investigation into the incident.  Gothner had initially been moved to office duty and is now on leave in accordance with standard department procedures and state law.
