CASE №00125
NAME: Jonathon Tubby
COUNTRY: USA
RIGHTS VIOLATION: Police arbitrariness
YEAR: 2021
CASE INFORMATION:

Jonathon Tubby, 26, was shot and killed by a police officer in Green Bay, Wisconsin.


On October 19, 2018, Tubby’s vehicle was pulled over by police because of traffic violation. Police officers found out that Tubby had an outstanding warrant for his arrest because he hadn’t reported to jail to serve a drunken-driving sentence. After that he was booked into a jail.


According to police, in the back seat of the patrol car, Tubby managed to unbuckle to get his cuffed hands, which had been behind his back, around in front of him. On the ride to jail, one of the officers radioed that Tubby had his hands under his shirt and “appeared to be pointing something at his chin.” Officers believed Tubby was armed and shot him 5 times.


In May 2021 a federal judge dismissed a lawsuit filed by Jonathon Tubby’s family against Green Bay police, Brown County sheriff and Brown County Jail officials. Tubby’s family said they will appeal this decision.

“This was a truly tragic situation, as it is every time there is a loss of human life. Personally, I have been reviewing every facet of this case for more than two years now and the court’s decision was absolutely no surprise to me,” said Andrew Smith, retired Green Bay police chief, after a federal judge dismissed the lawsuit in May 2021.
