Alleged assault victim files lawsuit against City of Sheffield, police department
COLBERT CO., Ala. (WAFF) - A Sheffield man is suing the City of Sheffield, the Sheffield Police Department and multiple officers after he says he was attacked on his own doorstep.
At first, words were exchanged between Long and the officers before he was attacked and mauled by a K-9 and officers. Long was then charged with resisting arrest.
Long says the entire incident violated his rights and was excessive use of force. For that, he is suing officers and deputies who were on the scene as well as the Mayor of Sheffield and the Colbert County Sheriff.
Due to media attention on the case, a judge has put a gag order in place.
