MONROE, Ohio — A Monroe police officer is suing the city and seven employees for more than $2.5 million on claims he was discriminated against because of his stuttering.

Officer Ken Parson is claiming verbal abuse by multiple supervisors, including being the subject of jokes, and one incident where he claims an officer threw a pen at the back of his head during roll call. The act, according to the lawsuit, received laughter by fellow officers and supervisors as opposed to discipline. Parson also claims to have been denied privileges afforded to other officers, including opportunities for overtime and peer recognition.
