Duluth officer back on the job

DULUTH — A Duluth police officer who dragged a handcuffed man through the city’s skywalk is back on the job.

Officer Adam Huot returned to work at the Duluth Police Department on Monday, assigned to desk-job duties, police spokeswoman Ingrid Hornibrook said.

In 2017, Huot handcuffed a man who had refused to leave the city’s skywalk system. Huot grabbed the chain connecting the cuffs and dragged the man about 100 feet. The man’s head struck a metal doorway.

The Duluth Police Union challenged his firing. A labor arbitrator ruled that Huot’s conduct warranted discipline but not dismissal. The arbitrator’s decision was upheld in district court and the state Appeals Court, and the state Supreme Court declined to hear the city’s appeal.
