A Ferguson police spokesman was placed on unpaid leave after acknowledging remarks to a Washington Post blogger in which he called the Michael Brown memorial a “pile of trash,” city officials said Saturday.
One day earlier, the city stood behind the spokesman, Officer Timothy Zoll — claiming he had been misquoted — after an inquiry into the damaged memorial in the middle of Canfield Drive. But officials retreated in a one-page statement issued Saturday.
Zoll was “confronted with the results” of a department investigation into the remarks attributed to him, city officials said.
The officer “admitted to department investigators” that he made the statement attributed to him” and had “misled” superiors about the interview.
