LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Former Louisville Metro Police Detective Brett Hankison is expected to appear in front of a judge Monday for arraignment.

Hankison was released from the Shelby County Detention Center on a $15,000 bond, 30 minutes after he was booked.

Hankison was fired from LMPD after Police Chief Robert Schroeder said he violated standard operating procedure for use of deadly force and obedience to rules and regulations the night of Breonna Taylor's death.

The arraignment hearing is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. on Sept. 28.
