East Idaho Man Files Suit Against Police Claiming Brutality
IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (AP) — A southeastern Idaho man has filed a claim against the Idaho Falls Police Department contending police brutality.
The Post Register reports that 26-year-old Kegan Kinghorn of Rigby filed the claim late last month in 7th District Court. The lawsuit names as defendants the city of Idaho Falls, Police Chief Mark McBride, Capt. Darren Cook and Sgt. Scott Killian. Kinghorn says in the lawsuit that during his arrest on Aug. 2 he suffered a broken nose, chipped teeth, concussion symptoms, a damaged bone near his eye socket and required more than 30 stitches to his face.
Kinghorn is seeking more than $10,000 in damages as well as attorney fees. Attorneys for those named as defendants in the case have filed a response to the lawsuit denying wrongdoing by their clients.
