Police sergeant files suit accusing fellow officers


Philadelphia police sergeant filed a civil rights lawsuit in federal court Monday accusing fellow officers of assaulting and falsely arresting him.

Brandon Ruff, who has been with the department since 2006, said he was arrested and punished “in retaliation for his engaging in protected speech and to prevent him from engaging in such speech in the future, all of which would have been personally and politically embarrassing to all defendants,” according to the suit.
