DALLAS (AP) - A woman is seeking $2 million in damages in a lawsuit against the city of Forney and its police chief after officers mistakenly pulled her over for a traffic stop in August.

Police say officers searching for four men on Aug. 9 stopped Kametra Barbour’s vehicle. Her 6-year-old son and two goddaughters were inside of the vehicle at the time.

Authorities say Barbour was briefly handcuffed, but that an officer apologized later to her, saying he and the others were called out to the wrong car.

Her lawsuit alleges negligence, false imprisonment and says her constitutional rights were violated.

A city spokesman says Forney officials know about the lawsuit but won’t comment due to pending litigation.
