Autistic teen's family sues Chicago cops over injury
By Angie Leventis Lourgos
CHICAGO — The family of a teenager with autism allegedly hit in the head by a Chicago police officer filed a lawsuit in federal court Monday against the city, police, as well as the agency that investigates department complaints.
The lawsuit says two Chicago police officers in April chased Oscar Guzman, who was 16 at the time, into his family's restaurant in Little Village and "beat Oscar in the head" with a baton, despite family members' protests that Guzman had special needs.
