Man sues after police beating caught on tape
“A Utah man claims he was the victim of police brutality and excessive force and has now filed a lawsuit against the officers involved. The case goes back to an incident last May in Millard County, and the entire event was recorded on the deputy’s dashboard camera.”
“Pikyavit was passed out on the side of a Fillmore street last May when his girlfriend found him and started walking him home.”
“A man picked them up to drive them but was pulled over by Millard County deputy Crete Carter, who ordered them out of the truck. ”
“That’s when the alleged brutality happened.”
“They say Carter lied about what exactly happened, delaying the proper treatment for Pikyavit.”
“‘I wasn’t resisting. I wasn’t a threat. I wasn’t doing nobody any harm or anything,’ Pikyavit said. ”
