Mississippi  Police Officer Forced Man to Lick Pee Off Cell Floor


A former police officer pleaded guilty in federal court on Thursday to forcing a man to lick urine off the floor of a holding cell. Michael Christian Green, 26, repeated commands to “lick it up,” and told the victim to “go suck it up right now,” according to court documents. The charge is deprivation of civil rights under color of law. 

The incident took place on Dec. 23, 2023. According to documents, Green had been dispatched to a family disturbance at the Sam’s Club at 90 Bass Pro Drive. He arrested a man, took him to the police department, and put him in a holding cell.

Surveillance footage showed the man knocking on the door to the holding cell, according to federal authorities. “[The man] attempted to communicate to Green that he needed to urinate,” documents said. “After waiting a period of time for a response, [the man] walked to the back of the cell and urinated in a corner.” Eventually, Green took the man to the booking area but then learned about the peeing.
