Columbus police officers accused in a federal civil-rights lawsuit of using excessive force on an Ohio State University student over what later amounted to a litter violation said in a court filing yesterday that they punched the young man up to seven times, sprayed mace in his face and hog-tied him, but that they did nothing wrong.
In their first response to the lawsuit, filed in October by Joseph Hines, 21, of Jackson, Mich., the officers said their actions came during the course of an arrest, that they were “acting under color of law” and that they should be immune from being sued.
“Defendants deny that they violated any constitutionally protected right or any law,” according to the filing.
The lawsuit accuses the officers of a “brutal, unjustified physical attack” on Aug. 29, 2012, that left Hines unconscious, led to a three-day hospitalization and caused permanent scarring. He’s seeking a minimum of $75,000.
