Ex-Cop Who Shot Daunte Wright Bails Out of Jail After Manslaughter Charge


4:52 PM PT — Potter has been released from the Hennepin County jail after posting a $100,000 bond.

12:29 PM PT — Prosecutors just charged Potter with second-degree manslaughter in Wright’s shooting death.

According to the criminal complaint, during the fatal interaction with Wright, Potter pulled out her Glock 9mm handgun with her right hand and pointed it at Wright while saying she would tase him.

The complaint says Potter said “Taser, Taser, Taser” and pulled the trigger on her handgun, firing one fatal round into Wright’s left side.

According to the complaint, an investigator from the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension examined Potter’s duty belt and noted her handgun is holstered on the right side of the belt and her Taser is holstered on the left side of the belt in a straight-draw position, meaning she would have to use her left hand to pull the Taser out from the holster.

As you can see, Potter’s home in Champlin, MN is already being protected with a chain link fence and concrete barriers blocking the property.
