DOYLESTOWN, Pa. - A Bucks County couple is suing the Doylestown Police Department for alleged civil-rights violations.
Jason and Elsa Hill, of Doylestown, say several police officers used unauthorized and unnecessary excessive force against them causing serious injuries.
The lawsuit cites an incident at the Farmhouse Tavern, on North Main Street, back in May of 2012.
The defendants say officers repeatedly used a stun gun on them without reason.
They're seeking at least $150,000 in damages.
We reached out to Police Chief James Donnelly, who was named in the lawsuit; he had no comment on the case.
