A Euclid woman filed a civil rights complaint Thursday in federal court against the city and a police officer alleging false arrest, malicious prosecution and excessive force.
This is the sixth federal lawsuit filed against the city for excessive force in the last two years.
According to the lawsuit, on March 27, 2017, Shajuan Gray had recently gotten out of the shower when she heard a knock on her door.
When Gray opened the door, Euclid Police Officer James Aoki entered her apartment without probable cause, pushed her over a freezer and arrested her, leaving bruises on her body, the lawsuit said.
