Kentucky Man Seeks $15 Million in Police Brutality Lawsuit

. By
Kenton, KYA Kenton county man who claims to have been the victim of police brutality has filed suit against local authorities seeking a reported $15 million in damages.

Terry Williams was arrested for indecent exposure and public intoxication in July 2007 when the police found him jogging naked alongside Interstate 75. The arresting officers proceeded to beat the unarmed man with their batons, blind him with pepper spray and shock him with a Taser gun more than 20 times.

The incident was caught on video by a cruise camera.

"I don't know why they hit me in the first place. I don't know why they hit me, for real. They just did it," Williams told the local news. "I did everything they asked me to do."

Photos of Williams taken after the beating reveal several cuts, scrapes and puncture wounds from the barbs fired from the Taser gun.

Williams' lawyer has filed a second suit against Kenton commonwealth attorney Rob Sanders accusing the lawyer of malicious prosecution.
