Officer Assaults Innocent Teen

Salt Lake City, UT: (Apr-08-08) The family of Ashton Guillory, a 17-year-old Highland High School student, brought a lawsuit against the City of Salt Lake, alleging that the teenager was smacked by a police detective. The suit named Detective Constantine Rodin, accusing him mistreating the boy.

The suit stated that Guillory was standing near the school's doors as Rodin was leaving. Rodin was there to investigate an unrelated case and did not know Guillory, who nonetheless, greeted him. Allegedly, the officer pulled the boy by his ears to lead him inside an office used by the police officers assigned to Highland High. Inside the office, Rodin is said to have slapped Guillory on the left side of his face, then he put his thumb in his ear and lifted the teen off his chair. The incident ended when Rodin returned Guillory's wallet and told him to leave, using expletives.

As part of a settlement reached in the police misconduct lawsuit, Salt Lake City paid $63,000 to Wendy Arrington, mother of Ashton Guillory, to resolve allegations. Rodin was fired from the police department after the incident, but is appealing the action. [THE SALT LAKE TRIBUNE: TEEN ALLEGEDLY SMACKED BY A POLICE OFFICER SETTLES LAWSUIT FOR $63,000]
