REDMOND, OR -- The father of a 14-year old boy is suing the Redmond Police alleging use of excessive force. A civil rights lawsuit was filed in federal court in Eugene last week by Michael Francisco. The Oregonian reports the lawsuit charges the boy posed no threat to two Redmond officers when they pressed a stun gun on his body and shocked him multiple times. The lawsuit seeks 250-thousand dollars in damages. A spokesperson for Redmond Police says internal affairs reviewed the case and found the use of force was justified. An attorney for the family says the teenager was detained on suspicion of what he called only minor offenses.
