Lawsuit against former Atlanta police officer
A radio personality has filed a lawsuit against a former Atlanta police officer over a traffic stop involving a Taser
ATLANTA – Attorneys for an Atlanta radio personality have called for criminal charges to be brought against a former Atlanta police officer.
Qri Montague said Officer Lemuel Gardner used a Taser on her during a traffic stop in October of last year.
The Atlanta Police Department launched an internal review after she filed a complaint and Gardner resigned.
Friday, she stood next to her two attorneys as they announced plans to file a lawsuit.
The traffic charges were eventually dropped against Montague.
According to her attorneys, an internal investigation revealed Gardner lied about using a Taser on Montague and failed to turn on his body camera.
