I have heard that the gentleman who alleges that the Harlan PD beat him has filed suit against the the city of Harlan.

Just heard it on WTUK too. The City of Harlan, the chief of police, and 3 officers (Luttrell, Ross and Cope) were mentioned in the lawsuit. They are suing for ? million. The announcement said that Luttrell and Ross attended a party at the bowling alley that served alcohol. The sheriff responded to the scene and eventually called the FBI in. I wasn't sure if I should have mentioned names but the radio did so I am assuming it is okay.

I knew it had to involve a taser.

Alleged beating leads to lawsuit


An alleged beating incident that occurred in a parking lot on June 7 has led to a lawsuit being filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in London.

Michael Holbrook, 24, of Coxton, was arrested following the alleged incident by Harlan City Police Officer Britt Ross and charged with second-degree assault on a police officer, second-degree disorderly conduct and alcohol intoxication in a public place.

According to the complaint, Holbrook filed suit against Harlan Police Officers Hunter Luttrell, Ross, Sgt. Matt Cope, Harlan Police Chief Mike Thomas, Harlan Mayor Danny Howard, the city of Harlan as a municipality and the Harlan Police Department.

According to a press release from Holbrook’s attorney, Doug Asher, officers used excessive force on Holbrook by tazing, choking and slamming Holbrook’s face into the pavement multiple times.

The release alleges an onlooker captured much of the alleged beating on video. The video allegedly depicts Luttrell stomping Holbrook’s neck while Holbrook is handcuffed and lying face down. It is additionally alleged an onlooker who told the officer to stop was also tazed and beaten by Ross and Luttrell.

Holbrook is asking for punitive damages in the amount of $5,000,000.

Thomas had no comment on the lawsuit when asked Tuesday.

Attempts to reach Luttrell, Ross, Cope and Howard were unsuccessful.

This is the strangest coincidence ever. In today's paper is the HPD lawsuit article, and on page 2 is an article regarding the new Barren County Sheriff being appointed. The Sheriff was sentenced to 18 months. That's Spooky!

They don't treat the public that they serve with any respect yet have the nerve to demand it. How soon they forget that they swore a oath to Serve and Protect, and Not to Beat and Neglect.

It isn't just HPD, it is all of them. Do they have ranks in their graduating class? If so, wonder where they ranked. I wonder where all law enforcement officers ranked in the county. Ought to be published.

Legion, I'm curious why you dislike police officers so badly?

I have no idea if they have ranks in the graduating class.
