Man claiming excessive force by Denver police officer files lawsuit

DENVER — Another lawsuit claiming excessive force was filed against the City and County of Denver and an officer with the Denver Police Department. The lawsuit stems from an incident in July 2014 that was captured on a HALO camera.

Brandon Schreiber is seen on the video. It shows him being pushed down a flight of stairs outside a Lower Downtown bar. Denver police Officer Choice Johnson was in the video and is seen shoving Schreiber.

Schreiber accused Johnson of using inappropriate force. Johnson was suspended for 30 days in March 2015 by the Denver deputy director of safety. Four months, a hearing officer overturned the suspension.
