Woman sues City of San Diego for excessive force by police officer during a Chargers game

Woman claims she suffered a broken jaw, concussion, and was shot with a stun gun during her first Charger game.

As if it wasn't painful enough seeing a Chargers game last year, throw in a broken jaw, a concussion, and two teeth getting knocked out, and it gets even more worse.

On May 2, a 30-year old woman filed a lawsuit in U.S. Federal Court against the City of San Diego and police officer Jadarric Davis for battery, civil rights violations, and negligence.

The woman alleges that during her first pro-football game in September of last year, she was, according to the complaint, ejected from the game "for reasons that are not completely clear."

San Diego Police Officer Davis and his partner detained and arrested her and began escorting her outside in handcuffs. It was then, according to the lawsuit, that out of the blue, Officer Davis shot her in the chest with his taser. Once outside, the woman claimed that Officer Davis picked her up and slammed her down against a cement barrier.

"Cuffed behind her back, [the woman] was completely controlled and helpless," reads the May 2 complaint. "Nevertheless, Officer Davis lifted [her] and violently slammed her onto the ground, face first, with tremendous force. [Her] face and chin slammed into the cement. Because she was handcuffed she had no way to break her fall."

The woman alleges that she was knocked unconscious and eventually admitted to the trauma unit in Sharp Memorial Hospital. There doctors and nurses treated her for three days for a broken jaw, and a concussion.

"The force and violence used by Officer Davis was wholly unnecessary, unjustified, and grossly excessive," continues the complaint. "Handcuffed behind her back and only five-feet-three-inches tall, [she] posed no threat to two much bigger, heavily armed police officers."

The complaint later goes on to add that no charges against were ever filed against the woman. And, just weeks after the incident, Officer Davis was involved in a domestic dispute and "booked into the San Diego County jail and was put on administrative leave by the police department."

She is suing the City for $75,000 in medical bills, in addition to compensation for lost wages, future medical expenses and emotional distress..

According to the complaint, a claim was filed against the city in March 2013. That claim was later denied.

I think there's a typo in the story: the $75,000 figure is missing a couple of zeros.

No typo Duhbya. More like poor writing. The $75k is just for past medical bills. The suit did not have a total dollar amount. The lawsuit is now uploaded. Thanks!--dh

I hope this lady gets quadruple of whatever she is seeking.

Somebody needs to rein in these psychotic cops. They are going completely overboard with the use of (sometimes fatal) force. I don't know if it is because they are scared to death, or because they have been trained to take down attacking terrorists, and don't have the intelligence to know the difference, but they are clearly the craziest bunch of criminals we have on the streets. Between shooting unarmed homeless; beating unarmed men and women senseless; displaying road rage; shooting unarmed women and children; and the unnecessary use of tazers and other defensive weapons, it is quickly becoming clear that the police are in need of some serious counseling, at the very least! Don't they do any psyche profiling at the academy anymore? This is inexcusable.
