An African-American man has filed a lawsuit against the Chicago Police Department, claiming he was beaten and arrested by police because he is black. In his lawsuit, the man claims he and another person, who was white, were filming a disturbance with police officers near a Chicago train station when officers approached them. The plaintiff claims the officers “politely” asked the white man to stop filming; when they approached the plaintiff, however, officers “grabbed his phone, cussed at him, beat him and dragged him to the hood of a squad car.” The lawsuit is seeking unspecified damages.
