A Woman Sues A Police Officer For Pushing Her To A Concrete Bench Causing Her To Shatter Her Face In A Jail Cell.
Cassandra Feuerstein, 47, is suing a police officer and the town of Skokie, Illinois, after she was injured when the cop pushed her face-first into a jail cell after she was arrested for drunk driving. She claims the injury to her face was so severe, she shattered some of her facial bones and as a result would need reconstructive surgery to replace the bones. The police officer has been identified as Michael Hart. There was a pool of blood after she fell and another officer pulled her head onto his lap in an attempt to stop the bleeding. Cassandra Feuerstein claims the officer who pushed her filed a false report claiming she resisted the police in order to cover up his action according to CBS. She pleaded guilty to DUI and the resisting the police charge was dropped.
