KINGSTON, N.Y. >> A city man who was tased and arrested in a September 2015 incident is suing the two Kingston police officers involved, alleging they violated his constitutional rights.
Fabian Marshall, 27, alleged in a lawsuit filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court, Northern District of New York, that he was subjected to excessive force by the officers, which caused him physical pain and suffering, emotional distress, and lost wages.
The suit names Kingston police officers Jeremy Arciello and Michael Mills as defendants and seeks unspecified compensatory and punitive damages.
According to the lawsuit, Marshall was waiting on Broadway at approximately 10:30 a.m., Sept. 4, 2015, for his aunt to give him a ride to work. At that time, Marshall was approached by Arciello while police officers were trying to find a “short, bald, middle-aged, light-skinned African American man” who allegedly had pushed an elderly rider off his bicycle near Broadway, the suit said.
