A career filled with allegations, yet department made him a lieutenant

Henderson police Lt. Brett Seekatz’s career has been filled with misconduct allegations — the most notorious a 2010 traffic stop where video showed he kicked a motorist suspected of DUI five times in the head.

Seekatz’ actions, described as sending shock waves across the valley, cost taxpayers almost $300,000 in settlements. Read more about him in part 2 of Flawed Discipline, our investigation into police accountability.
