Kevin R. Sullivan, badge #664850
Department: St Paul
Sullivan, a St. Paul police officer, got into an off-duty brawl outside Trappers Bar & Grill in Lino Lakes in 2011 and eventually pleaded guilty to misdemeanor disorderly conduct. He got a stay of adjudication, meaning that after he met the court’s conditions the case was dismissed with no conviction. Five months later, while still on probation, Sullivan and two other undercover officers chased an unarmed man from a suspicious vehicle and beat him severely. The man was hospitalized with a fractured skull, nose and eye socket, and the city of St. Paul paid $95,000 to settle his claims. Sullivan retained his state license and remained on the St. Paul force.
