Black real estate agent and his clients file lawsuit after handcuffed

A federal lawsuit says officers violated the civil rights of a Black real estate agent, his client and his client’s son when they handcuffed the three individuals who were on a home tour. Michigan police have previously described it as an “unfortunate” misunderstanding.

Real estate agent Eric Brown, Roy Thorne and his 15-year-old son Samuel, in early October filed a federal lawsuit against the city of Wyoming, Michigan, the Wyoming police chief and the six police officers involved in the Aug. 1 incident, which started when officers responded to a call from a neighbor.

The neighbor believed a person who had been previously arrested for unlawful entry into the house had returned. The suspect drove a a black Mercedes but the officers only found two vehicles, a black Hyundai Genesis sedan and a black Chevrolet Malibu.
