Police Officers Abuse Woman At Police Station

Police Officers and your rights: policecrimes.com Know your rights never talk to police officers and NEVER open your door to cops when they knock. Mimi Lee, 34, filed a federal lawsuit this month against five Norwalk police officers, accusing them of physically and emotionally abusing her during an arrest May 7, 2009. Lee was arrested and charged with drunken driving shortly after urinating in a hospital parking lot, according to police, but a judge later dismissed the charges. What happened at the police station immediately after the arrest triggered the lawsuit. Lee’s attorney, Daniel Wightman, says officers’ actions were brutal and unprovoked. Norwalk police say Lee was “violently irate,” which prompted them to use force so she wouldn’t assault them. The suit accuses Norwalk police Officer James Montana of choking Lee, bending her over backward, dragging her by the handcuffs, slamming her onto the ground and using excessive violence while she was inside the Norwalk police station. Four others in the police station at the time — Chief Dave Light, Officer Christian Hipp, Officer Thomas Cook and an unnamed John Doe — did nothing to stop the assault, the lawsuit claims. policecrimes.com If you feel you have been abused by the police, you may learn how to file a police complaint here policecrimes.com or seek a lawyer.
