NANTUCKET ISLAND, Mass. — Five black teenagers filed a federal lawsuit this week alleging that Nantucket police officers used "excessive force" in arresting them without probable cause, according to the case file.

At about 10:30 p.m. on Aug. 8, 2007, the five teens rode their bicycles into town and were asked by Nantucket police Officer Taylor Noll to "move to the other side of the street," according to the court papers.
