PhD Student Sues Police After Being Arrested For Stealing His Own Car
If you’re ever inclined to call the police to report a crime, it should give you pause if you start the conversation with the words, “I don’t know if I’m like racial profiling…” That kind of red flag was ignored by an anonymous 911 caller in 2015 when they reported what they thought was a car theft in Evanston, Ill.
Northwestern University PhD student Lawrence Crosby was arrested by Evanston police in October 2015 for reportedly stealing his own car, despite repeatedly telling them that the car was his and that he had documentation to prove it.
Crosby is now suing the four officers who arrested him, as well as the city of Evanston, and seeking damages in excess of $50,000, according to ABC7.
