Iowa: White Man with History of Domestic Abuse Arrested for Shooting Police Officers

HeadlineNov 03, 2016

In Iowa, a man has been arrested following the fatal shootings of two police officers. Suspect Scott Michael Greene, who is white, is accused of killing the two white police officers in “ambush-style” attacks early Wednesday morning. The shootings come a few weeks after Greene brought a Confederate battle flag to a football game at Urbandale High School and waved it in front of people of color. He was thrown out of the stadium by police. He has also been accused of multiple instances of domestic violence. A few days after he brought the Confederate flag to the football game, he was arrested and charged with elderly abuse after he reportedly attacked his mother. He was also charged for domestic violence in 2001. The charges were later dropped.
