I had my hands in the air while I spoke to the police in my hallway so that they would not take my demeanor as threatening since I am a big guy and talk aggressively, so I did not want them to think I was being aggressive. I asked the Sargent, “what was I supposed to do to get her out,” since they weren’t taking her and also asked, “what if I throw her out since she is causing trouble in my house and I need to go to work.” Not once did I ever say, “what if I do this” and pushed the officer. The 2nd officer proceeded to push past me in this small hallway, that 2 adults can not fit through, let alone someone as big as me, as I was talking to the Sargent, and next thing I knew two officers slammed me into my office and onto the floor and began assaulting me. They then carried me down the stairs in my bare feet and only a tank top and basketball shorts in the freezing temperatures, and slammed me into the squad car. They took me to the station and continued to slam me around the walls there. As I sat in the room with the officers, they told me they could charge me with assaulting an officer or reckless endangerment. If I chose reckless endangerment, then I could go home.
You should make an appointment to speak with a lawyer in your area that works in the civil rights area and does wrongful arrest type cases or excessive force cases. Do so right away because each state has differing laws about preservation of your claims and they can be time barred if you wait too long.
