Former Metro Police narcotics detective Bryan Yant has received a week’s suspension without pay for last year’s controversial shooting of an unarmed man. The “Review-Journal” says it was the harshest penalty short of being fired. But the parents of Trevon Cole say the penalty wasn’t enough. Cole was shot and killed during a drug raid last June. An internal probe found Yant violated several department policies. Yant has been reassigned to a desk job.
