GRAPHIC: Woman Sues Officer Alleging Brutality

A Chicago woman is suing Skokie and one of its police officer's for brutality. Cassandra Feuerstein was arrested for allegedly driving drunk, back in March. Now she's claiming police video shows the officer unnecessarily shoving her into the jail cell resulting in a head injury that required facial reconstructive surgery. The suit also alleges that police made false statements and claimed she resisted being put in the cell. Skokie officials have not commented on the lawsuit.
