Off-duty Lakeville police officer killed in motorcycle crash

LAKEVILLE, Minn. (AP) — An off-duty Lakeville police officer has died in a motorcycle crash.

Authorities say Sgt. Brigham Strole was thrown from his bike about 9 p.m. Wednesday in a residential area in Lakeville. A witness told Chief Thomas Vonhof that Strole's motorcycle was swaying back and forth just before it crashed.

The Star Tribune reports Strole was a 20-year veteran of the department where he has served as a member of the SWAT team, as a K-9 officer, firearms instructor and field training officer.
