MONROE, La. (KNOE) - The FBI is looking into an alleged excessive force case involving Monroe police. Attorneys maintain Timothy Williams was beaten by Monroe police officers in 2020.

Attorneys with the Pleasant, Williams & Banks-Miley Law Group, LLC. believe video captured by police body cameras is key evidence showing excessive force. They say Williams was kicked in the head while in police custody on April 21, 2020. Video shows him handcuffed and laying on the ground.

The trauma still haunts him.

“It’s hard. He has not fully recuperated from what happened to him. He still has nightmares, he’s still having these night sweats he’s still...I would like to say afraid of police officers,” said attorney Donecia Banks-Miley.

Williams’ legal team recently filed a federal lawsuit.
