Suit Filed over Tasering

Antonio Love is suing the city of Mobile and Dollar General after police tasered and pepper sprayed the deaf and mentally disabled man last year. We told you about what happened back in July. Police forced Love out of the store restroom and even though he put up no resistance, he was tasered three times. Even after finding out he was deaf and there was a misunderstanding, officers still tried to put him in jail. A Mobile police internal investigation which we told you about here, said the police were justified in using force but shouldn't have tried to arrest Love. City officials have yet to respond to the lawsuit.
