Lawsuit: Cops Shoved A ‘Sharp Object’ Down Teen’s Throat, Killing Him

•, Robby Soave
The teen, whose first name is not given in the lawsuit, allegedly died at the hands of Huntsville, Alabama, police during an attempted drug bust. His mother, Nancy Smith, filed the lawsuit.

Smith was set up in a drug sting operation facilitated by a police informant. Officers approached Smith during the drug deal, and he ran. The officers were not dressed as cops and did not announce themselves as such.

Smith was caught by an officer and thrown to the ground, suffering injuries. He was cuffed and violently restrained. Officers even pepper-sprayed him.

Matters quickly became much worse.
