Unarmed Minn. man shocked by TASER sues

Minneapolis Star Tribune

MINNEAPOLIS — The 18-year-old man who said a Minneapolis police officer used a TASER on him after his surrender filed a civil lawsuit Friday.

The suit by Rolando Demetrio Ruiz, filed in Hennepin County District Court, names the city, Police Chief Tim Dolan, officer Todd Lappegaard and unknown officers. Ruiz's lawyer Albert Goins has released video footage of the April 30 incident and has said Lappegaard was the officer who held a TASER to the back of Ruiz's neck for at least 15 seconds.
