CASE ENTRY

Stillwagon v. City of Del., Ohio

Former OSU football star James Stillwagon probably thought that his day had gotten as bad as it could when a driver with road rage tried to run him over six times, forcing him to use a handgun to defend himself. That was before he got arrested, roughed up, and charged with felonious assault. Sixth Circuit: And the cops who roughed him up and lied to get an indictment are not entitled to qualified immunity.
