City officials said on Wednesday that an arbitrator in the case ruled that Officer Bradley Canterbury can return to work.
Canterbury was one of four officers fired after the March 21 arrest of three brothers, including 28-year-old Octavius Johnson near 33rd and Seward.
Johnson was grabbed from behind, thrown to the ground and later struck several times while on the ground by Canterbury. Police were unaware at the time that a neighbor was recording the arrest, and the footage surfaced online.
Canterbury, a Marine Corps veteran who was hired by the department in 2008, was the only officer to appeal his firing to an arbitrator.
