A border protection officer is accusing Palm Beach County deputies of trying to cover up what he alleges was "illegal activity" on their part including planting a handgun in his doorway to justify shooting at him with live rounds and rubber bullets during a standoff.
Luis P. Rodriguez, now 56, of suburban West Palm Beach, was hit by a rubber bullet fired by deputies and then bitten by a Sheriff's K-9 on Dec. 27, 2009. The canine broke Rodriguez's leg and severed an artery, court documents said.
Rodriguez has filed a civil complaint that accuses Sheriff Ric Bradshaw and five deputies of false imprisonment and arrest, excessive force and malicious prosecution, among other allegations. He is seeking an unspecified amount of damages.
