Carlos Moore Files Suit Against City Of Greenwood

GREENVILLE, MS (Ben Caxton) — Delta attorney Carlos Moore was busy in court again this week. Moore filed suit in federal court in Greenville against the City of Greenwood and Greenwood Police Chief ray Moore on behalf of a Leflore County man who say police assaulted him violating his 4th, 5th, 8th, and 14th amendment rights in the process during an arrest in January. The Greenwood Commonwealth newspaper reports the suit claims 28-year-old Gianni Williams was followed by Greenwood OfficerJerry Williams for two blocks as he was driving home on January 30 of this year. Moore alleges he was pulled over and told he had twice failed to use his turn signal before he was told to lie on the ground and was handcuffed. The officer called for backup, and when an unidentified officer arrived, they both physically assaulted him. The suit says he didn’t receive his Miranda rights, and neither officer tried to stop the attack or offer him assistance. It claims he was shot several times with a stun gun until he was placed in the squad car. Williams also says the officers confiscated and destroyed his wife’s cellphone which contained video of the assault, and planted marijuana in his vehicle to justify the traffic stop.
