The Minneapolis Police Union will not file a grievance over the two officers who were fired for using racial and sexual slurs.

According to police reports, officers Brian Thole and Shawn Powell were intoxicated in Green Bay earlier this year during the incident.

Police dash cam video caught the incident.

The men were fired earlier this month, but can appeal.
