PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - A former member of the security staff at a shuttered Providence nightclub has filed suit alleging she was brutalized by officers.

The Providence Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1G2wUIB ) Kali Reis filed the lawsuit in federal court against former Patrolman Gregory Daniels, the department and its command staff. The 29-year-old Providence woman says Chief Hugh Clements and others kept customs and policies in place that led to her being beaten, repeatedly pepper sprayed and handcuffed in the back of a police wagon following a fight at the now-closed Club Karma.

Reis says the actions of Daniels and the department represented a knowing, willful and reckless disregard of her right to be free of excessive force by police.

She is seeking unspecified damages.

Providence Police officials declined to comment on the case.
