A civil rights lawsuit has been filed against the Carlsbad Police Department after a forty three year old Valencia woman said that she was beaten by officers for reporting that an officer used foul language.
Video footage taken by a bystander in 2013 shows Cindy Hahn held down on the ground by officers with her hair being pulled and being punched while she is crying out for help.
