Excessive Force Lawsuit Filed Against Cop


An elderly dentist who accused an Albany cop of excessive force has now filed a federal lawsuit against the city, and the police department.

73-year-old John Behrmann accused officer Michael Geraci of dragging him by the ankles, from a police van during a disorderly conduct arrest.

A Grand Jury failed to indict Geraci on any criminal charges, but Behrmann now names the city, the Albany Police Department, and Geraci in this new complaint, saying the department ignored his brutality complaints.
