Amidst turmoil within the Nebraska State Patrol, Gov. Pete Ricketts along with Chief Human Resources Officer Jason Jackson will present the findings and recommendations from the administration's internal review of the Nebraska State Patrol. 

This comes after reports of a high-speed chase that led to a fatality and another traffic stop in which a trooper rifle-butted a drunken suspect in the face. 

Most recently Trooper Brienne Splittgerber filed a federal lawsuit against the state claiming that during a pre-employment physical in 2014, the doctor instructed her to expose private parts for a "hernia check".

The press conference happens at 4 p.m. today and 3 News Now will livestream the findings on Facebook and on this website.
