SAN FRANCISCO — A San Francisco police inspector has filed a federal civil rights suit against the city of Antioch, saying a police officer shocked her with a Taser during a confrontation in her home where she was trying to evict a tenant.

Inspector Marvetia Lynn Richardson, 41, a 14-year San Francisco police veteran who is now on unpaid leave from her job, said Antioch officers broke down her door last year, stunned her with a Taser and then took her to jail when she demanded to write "Tasered" on a citation for resisting arrest.
