KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) - The president of Kenosha’s NAACP chapter has filed a complaint against the local police department.

Veronica King says she was “roughed up” by Kenosha officer after being arrested for obstruction during a traffic stop last Sunday. A police report says King repeatedly ignored the officer’s command to get back in her van.

King says she has arthritis and that police should be tolerant of the disabled and the fact they may not be able to move quickly. The 52-year-old King was cited for speeding and obstruction. The Kenosha News (http://bit.ly/1OjGFVc ) says she was released and went to St. Catherine’s Medical Center where she was diagnosed with a shoulder sprain. She says the officer strained her shoulder when he put the handcuffs on too tight.

King wants her citations dismissed and an apology from police. The department did not immediately return a call for comment.
