Ohio Man Files Police Brutality Lawsuit
An Ohio man has filed suit against two Nelsonville police officers who allegedly beat him up and delayed taking him to the hospital during an “unwarranted” traffic stop in 2011. The suit claims two officers tackled the plaintiff and “stomped and kicked” him for two or three minutes. The man complained of chest pains after the beating but police did not take him to the hospital until after booking him on drunk driving charges, which were later dismissed. The lawsuit is seeking at least $250,000 in damages.
