Officers, City and County Sued for Injuries in Arrest

images (1)The grandmother of a young woman who suffered serious injury while in police custody has filed suit against the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department. The suit alleges that, while an internal investigation cleared the officers of wrongdoing, that the officers were in fact negligent in their lack of action and violated their oath to protect and serve. Tanisha Williams, who was 18 at the time of her arrest for alleged shoplifting, had a documented history of mental illness, including but not limited to, attempted suicide. Upon arrest Williams began repeatedly slamming her head into the protective barrier in the back of the patrol car while the arresting officers did nothing to prevent injury.  According to attorney William Harding, who filled the suit, Tanisha is alive –” but she has no enjoyment of life.”
