Excessive force, gross negligence claim vs. EMU and Ypsilanti police is dismissed
Rhonda Green sued several police officers after she was arrested in the Buffalo Wild Wings parking lot. She had been involved in an altercation with her cousin over ownership of an article of clothing, and the altercation had drawn a crowd of 150 people. Police acted appropriately in arresting Green, and the judges concluded that they also responded appropriately to Green resisting arrest. Judge Beckering did point out that under the law, it was the duty of the individual deputies to plead and prove that they were entitled to governmental immunity for their actions.
