Dumervil plans to sue Miami police over weapons arrest


In July, Broncos linebacker Elvis Dumervil was arrested for aggravated assault.  No criminal charges ever were filed against Dumervil, but civil charges may now be filed against the police.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Dumervil plans to sue the City of Miami and the Miami police department for false arrest and defamation.  Dumervil’s lawyer, Harvey Steinberg (who is sort of like the Broncos’ version of Tom Hagen), told Schefter that a lawsuit is coming.

Dumervil will be seeking compensation for being imprisoned and for incurring legal fees.  The lawsuit will be filed before the end of the year.

    In related news, the Broncos plan to sue Dumervil for his last two game checks since he did absolutely nothing against terrible left tackles.

    Being a cop in Miami is probably one of the toughest jobs in the Country. Are they going to make a false arrest once in awhile…sure. But whether you live there, or are visiting there, you are going to thank your lucky stars when you need them.
