VIDEO: Man Sues Baltimore PD for $35 Million Over Use of Force

A Baltimore City man is seeking $35 million after he says a police officer beat him up on June 15 for no reason at all.

In a 15-page complaint filed in circuit court, the events of that night are laid out from the moment Truss first encountered the officers to the first blow, WJZ TV reports.

The police department says Truss disobeyed the officer’s original orders

The officer said Truss and the woman got into a verbal argument across the street and Truss pushed her three times. He says he went to make an arrest and that’s when Truss got into a fighting stance.

Truss was charged with misdemeanors, including assault, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and alcohol intoxication. The charges were dropped.
