Attorney claims client was injured by Tell City officer
TELL CITY - A tort-claim notice sent by a local attorney last week alleges a Tell City police officer used excessive force during an April search of a home, using an electric stun gun on his client without provocation.
The notice was sent to county commissioners by Tell City attorney S. Rod Acchiardo but names Tell City Police Department and Patrolman Roger Smith, not the county, as parties to the claim. The document threatens to seek legal action against the city and the officer to obtain compensation.
