OAKLAND, Calif. —
An Iraq War veteran who was seriously hurt during a police raid on an Occupy Oakland encampment last year is suing Alameda County for abuse during his 18 hours in jail.
Army veteran Kayvan Sabeghi's lawsuit says sheriff's jailers denied him medical care and mocked him for hours before he got treatment.
The San Francisco Chronicle says he underwent surgery for a lacerated spleen and was hospitalized for five days.
The 33-year-old Oakland man's lawsuit says he was taking part in the Occupy protest and was heading home when an Oakland officer clubbed him with a nightstick.
Sabeghi was arrested for investigation of remaining at the scene of a riot and he was held for 18 hours. He was never charged.
