Iowa Sergeant Sues Man Who Choked Him

An Iowa City Police sergeant has filed a lawsuit against a former University of Iowa student who attacked him while intoxicated, reports the Press-Citizen.

Sgt. Brian Krei filed a lawsuit in mid-December against 21-year-old Branden Plummer, who was sentenced to 60 days in jail on Nov. 2. Plummer pleaded guilty in September to willful injury and interference with official acts inflicting bodily injury.

The lawsuit stems from an encounter in the early morning hours of Nov. 18, 2011. Krei had asked Plummer for his identification after he was seen blocking traffic at a downtown Iowa City intersection. Plummer then choked Krei and allegedly slammed his head against the concrete.

ATTACK A PEACE OFFICER OR JAIL/PRISON OFFICER, NEVER SEE THE LIGHT OF DAY.

This needs to happen more often. I read an article about a corrections officer who sued a combative imate in small claims for injuries the CO sustained in a restraint. The CO was awarded all the money the inmate had in his prison account, so no more candy bars for a while. It was all the money the inmate had, so that brought a small token of justice for the CO, each time he handed out 'canteen' and this inmate got nothing.

Glad to see this. This should be done more often. A lot of times the department won't let an officer sue. I think we should be able to do like the criminals and sue everyone involved.

Good luck. I hope it works out. Unfortunately a lot of people say that because of our profession we know what we're in for and that we should expect bad things to happen to us, and not have the right to sue. Which is total bullshit!

More Police need to sue criminals. Good Job!
