SHREVEPORT – A 71-year-old Shreveport man alleges two police officers injured him in his home.
Albert E. Konrad filed a complaint on Feb. 17 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana, Shreveport Division against Officer T. A. Kolb, Officer R. E. Bordelon, the city of Shreveport, Mayor Ollie Tyler, et al. alleging that they violated the Fourth and 14th Amendments of the U.S. Constitution.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Feb. 20, 2016, two officers came to his home without a warrant to question a woman residing at his home, when suddenly and without provocation, the two officers attacked him. As a result, he claims he suffered multiple lacerations to his face, swelling, a broken nose, soft tissue damages, physical and mental pain and incurred medical expenses. The plaintiff holds Kolb, Bordelon, the city of Shreveport, Tyler, et al. responsible because the city of Shreveport allegedly failed to properly train and/or re-train its officers with regard to the use of force and failed to properly investigate, train and/or supervise its employees.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendants, jointly, severally, and in solido, in a reasonable amount to be determined at trial; attorneys' fees; and all other general and equitable relief. He is represented by Billy R. Pesnell, J. Whitney Pesnell and W. Alan Pesnell of The Pesnell Law Firm in Shreveport.
