Plaintiffs allege that Tyrone West was subjected to an illegal traffic stop and, “[a]s a result of the unconstitutional use of force by Defendants, Tyrone West received multiple severe injuries about his body, experienced severe pain and suffering, and mental anguish resulting in death.” Further, they maintain that “the individual police officer defendants made an unreasonable seizure” of Mr. West, thereby violating his rights under the Fourth and Fourteenth Amendments and “assaulted and battered [him], resulting in his death, and otherwise used excessive force and unwarranted force during the course of said seizure.” Plaintiffs maintain that such incidents are part of a common practice, pattern, policy, and custom in the BPD.
