Disabled vet sues federal agency in Portland
Question of the Day
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A disabled veteran who was stunned with a Taser by federal security officers in Portland is suing the four officers and the federal government.
In the lawsuit filed in federal court in Portland, former Air Force Sgt. William Bayes accuses the officers of negligence, assault and false arrest.
The Oregonian reports (http://is.gd/9meOdh ) the 47-year-old who wears knee braces and used a cane was going to an appointment in December 2012 at a Disabled American Veterans office.
He clashed with the security officers when they found a pocketknife as he was being screened.
A spokeswoman for the Department of Homeland Security, which oversees the Federal Protective Service, said the department does not comment on pending litigation.
