Jordan Miles, the Pittsburgh teen violinist who was brutally beaten by police in January, has filed a federal lawsuit saying three white Pittsburgh police officers wrongfully beat him, then conspired to file false charges against him and concocted a cover story for their actions.
An 18-year-old Pittsburgh teen that was violently beaten by police with his dreadlocks ripped out is filing a lawsuit against his attackers.
Jordan Miles and his family have decided to file a federal lawsuit against the three white Pittsburgh police officers that he says beat him and conspired to file false charges against him after concocting a story to cover-up their actions.
As previously reported, the teen violinist says he was walking to his grandmother's house when he was approached by three plains clothes officers saying,
“Where's the money?” “Where's the gun? Where's the drugs?”
Fearing for his safety, Miles ran away and says when police caught up with him they beat him and ripped his hair from his scalp.
According to the lawsuit filed Monday, Miles says he had his face pushed into the snow and his gums impaled on a piece of wood, as officers kicked and punched him Jan. 12, a day after his 18th birthday.
He also says that he thought he was being kidnapped and in fear began reciting “The Lord's Prayer” prompting police to choke him and slam his face into the snowy ground.
Police charged Miles with loitering and prowling, aggravated assault and resisting arrest, claiming he acted suspiciously then fought with them after they clearly identified themselves as officers but Miles denies those claims.
A city judge dropped the charges against Miles in March.
He is seeking unspecified damages against the officers.
Do you think he will win his civil case? How much do you think they should have to pay him?
