The Superior Police and Fire Commission discussed Wednesday the idea of filling their next vacancy with a person of color.

Natasha Lancour's attorney, Rick Gondik, said he and his client were happy to hear the recommendation.

Lancour is facing disorderly conduct and resisting arrest charges in connection with the incident outside the Keyport Lounge on January 5.

Superior Police Officer George Gothner responded to the parking lot for a fight and arrested Lancour. Part of the arrest was caught on his dash camera. Lancour and Gondik say Gothner used excessive force in her arrest.

Gothner has been placed on administrative leave while the Department of Justice investigates the use of force.

Gondik said an investigator involved in the state's investigation told him the investigation is now complete. Douglas County District Attorney Daniel Blank should have received the findings for review Thursday, said Gondik.
