DENVER – A Denver man has filed a lawsuit against the City and County of Denver — and Denver Police Officer Choice Johnson — alleging the officer was violent and the city failed to properly train him.
On July 26, 2014, Brandon Schreiber told 9NEWS his brother, Matthew, had fallen asleep at The 1Up bar on the 1900 block of Blake Street. Schreiber said a bartender asked his brother to leave. Moments later, Denver police detained his brother outside of the bar, and sent him to detox. Schrieber said he approached Officer Johnson to ask a few questions about his brother.
