Cassandra Feuerstein, of Chicago is suing the city of Skokie for police brutality. Feuerstein, who admits to being intoxicated while driving says that Skokie cop Officer Michael Hart used excessive force by throwing her into a concrete bench within a holding cell. Feuerstein required surgery and the insertion of a titanium plate to repair the damage.
Officer Hart had also charged Feuerstein with resisting arrest, but that charge was tossed by the DA. The following tape recorded the actions of Hart. He is now charged with filing a false report in order to cover his actions against Feuerstein. The tape is quite upsetting.
