No charges for Minnesota cop who appeared to strike teen

RICHFIELD, Minn. -- No charges will be filed against a Richfield police officer apparently shown in a Twitter video pushing and striking a Somali-American teen.

The cellphone video captures the officer telling Kamal Gelle to leave a park in October.

Gelle says the officer pushed him and hit him in the head.

Two police officers were placed on paid administrative leave while the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension investigated.
