A Detroit 17-year-old, Tyler Wade, who was arrested on June 2nd for allegedly driving a stolen vehicle is now suing Warren Police Department for brutal assault.

According to the Detroit Free Press, before making the arrest, police officers repeatedly punched Tyler Wade, striking him so hard that one of his braces came out of his mouth.

Wade’s attorney, James King, said his client had no criminal history or prior interactions with law enforcement.

King claims Wade tried to evade police by speeding away after they stopped him on the suspicion he was driving a stolen vehicle. Police allege that Wade had ma*****na and threw a gun out of the car —accusations that King denies. According to King, the pursuit ended when the car finally stopped after crashing into a stop sign on a corner.

As seen on police body camera and dashcam footage, the officers approached the car aiming their fi****ms at Wade. They reportedly went into Wade’s car without an explanation and used excessive force to remove him.

The lawsuit King filed names six police officers identified in the case only by their last names and badge numbers, as well as the city of Warren and its Police Department. The lawsuit alleges that after aggressively yanking Wade out of the car and onto the pavement, the officers “proceeded to viciously assault” him, repeatedly punching, kicking, stomping and kneeing him.

According to the complaint, he now suffers regular, severe headaches, the possibility of long-term vision loss, and facial scars. The complaint did not contain a request for damages but notes that Warren police might expect a request for close to $20 million.

A Queens resident is fed up over a broken pipe that has been constantly leaking hot steam into his apartment since Saturday.

“The first time I thought it was a fire. I’m running around looking. And I ran to the kitchen. Nothing was on. Then I see all this steam smoke coming up clouding the whole room and my bedroom,” said 68 year old tenant Rondu Allah.

On Tuesday, Allah put plastic over his belongings and moved them away from the heater. He has asthma and worries about the air he’s breathing.

Allah pays $1,700 a month for his one-bedroom on Lefferts Blvd in Queens. He’s lived there for more than a decade and says this happened several years ago.
