HUNTINGTON – A Huntington police officer who has been recognized for his number of yearly DUI arrests twice in the last three years has had one he made last year called into question.
HPD Officer Joseph W. Koher is named as a co-defendant in a four-count civil rights suit filed by Nicholas Evans. In his complaint filed March 15 in U.S. District Court, Evans, 32 and of Huntington, alleges Koher stopped him without probable cause for DUI and later knocked him to the ground so as to add a charge of obstruction and pad his arrest record.
Evans’ suit is the fifth filed in the last year to allege civil rights violations by HPD.
