Green Bay Police Department confirms officer put his hands on Packers running back AJ Dillon during exhibition soccer match

GREEN BAY, Wisconsin — The Green Bay Police Department confirmed it was one of its officers who put his hands on Packers running back AJ Dillon during a weather delay of an exhibition football game at Lambeau Field on Saturday and said she will investigate the incident.

A video of Dillon, the Packers’ third running back, showed an officer trying to stop the player from interacting with fans at the friendly between Manchester City and Bayern Munich. Dillon wanted to jump into the stands and do a Lambeau jump and was initially stopped before he was allowed to do so.

Dillon called it a “misunderstanding between the parties” in a tweet posted sunday.

The police department issued a statement, saying, “The Green Bay Police Department is aware of social media video showing an interaction between a Green Bay police officer and Green Bay Packer AJ Dillon at the football game at Lambeau Field on Aug July 23, 2022 shows. It is clear that there was a communication failure between the officer and Mr Dillon. The Green Bay Police Department appreciates Mr. Dillon’s perspective and words of support. The Green Bay Police Department’s Professional Standards/Internal Affairs Division has initiated an investigation into this incident.”

Dillon was one of several Packers players who took part in the friendly – the first football game ever played at Lambeau Field.

“It’s obviously very unfortunate what happened,” Packers President Mark Murphy said Monday. “I understand AJ was basically saying, ‘Listen, there was a misunderstanding,’ and I know I believe the police department only recently issued a statement.”
