Ex-Pearl Police Officer Who Made Latino Man Lick Urine Off Jail Floor Pleads Guilty

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — A former Mississippi police officer pleaded guilty Thursday to a federal misdemeanor charge after authorities said he forced a Latino man he had arrested to lick urine off the floor of a jail cell.

Michael Christian Green, 26, lost his job as a Pearl Police Department patrol officer in late December, four days after security cameras showed the violent encounter in Pearl, a suburb of the capital city of Jackson.

After waiting for some time, the man went to the back of the cell and urinated in a corner, the document said.

“You’re fixin’ to go in there and you’re going to lick that p—— up,” Green said, according the court document. “Do you understand me?”

Green took the man back into the cell and told him to get on the ground and “suck it up,” then used his phone to
