|Jason Shelton's bare foot was "stomped" by a Scottsdale cop for no good reason during his 2008 arrest. The cop, Alan Hale, was reprimanded.|
It turns out that Jason Shelton, anti-speed-camera activist, was assaulted by a Scottsdale
police detention officer in jail is true, after all.
We just received a copy of the notice of claim filed against the city of Scottsdale by anti-speed-camera activist Jason Shelton, who's suing over his bogus 2008 arrest. As mentioned in our earlier blog post today about the new lawsuit, Scottsdale's finest arrested Shelton for failing to give police his true name while being questioned at a small protest of a speed-camera van.
Shelton had been doing nothing but videotaping two activists, neither of whom were arrested or charged with anything, yet cops hauled him to jail when he told them he didn't have to give his name.
The claim states that Shelton seeks $134,944.09 for his pain and troubles.
But of even more interest is what's attached to the claim: A copy of a 2009 discipline report against Scottsdale police detention officer Alan Hale.More »
