MILWAUKEE (AP) — Funeral arrangements have been made for a Milwaukee Police officer who died years after he was intentionally hit by a motorist.
Officer Mark Lentz was attempting to stop a speeding motorist Aug. 3, 2017, when he was intentionally hit by a driver. Police said Lentz began to show signs of traumatic brain injury and nerve damage, lost the ability to speak and suffered substantial memory loss.
A public visitation is scheduled from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday at Elmbrook Church in Brookfield, with a public funeral to follow. A private visitation will be held Wednesday in Greenfield.
Lentz was awarded a Purple Valor Star in May.
The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's Office is investigating his death.
