Lawsuit Alleges Police Abuse

"The cops are supposed to be here to protect and serve, but they didn't do that with me."

The 32-year-old was going into the house when Kennedy allegedly asked him where he was going, and followed Andre Mitchell into his mother's house, according to the lawsuit.

Kennedy slammed Andre Mitchell to the floor, handcuffed him, stood him up and then sprayed him with pepper spray, according to the lawsuit. The family had to leave the house because the pepper spray affected them, according to the lawsuit.
