Freed Officer Back at Academy Training

Michael Mette released Oct. 8 after court overturned assault conviction

CHICAGO -- When Officer Michael Mette was freed from prison earlier this month, he said he wanted to get back to police work.

He didn’t waste any time.

Mette is now in the Chicago Police academy undergoing retraining -- and will join the newly created Mobile Strike Force when he is finished, police said.

Mette, 31, was released from prison in Iowa on Oct. 8 after an appeals court there ruled that he was wrongfully convicted for hitting a college student in Dubuque.
