Suit Stems For PF Road Rage Incident

An Idaho man who called 911 to report a road-rage encounter with a Portland police traffic captain nearly two years ago is now suing the officer and the city of Portland. Lawyers for Nicholas Cox, 30, filed the suit Tuesday in Multnomah County Circuit Court, accusing Todd Wyatt of assault. Wyatt, 45, has since been demoted to lieutenant, partly due to his off-duty confrontation with Cox in August 2011. The suit also attempts to hold the city responsible for Wyatt's off-duty behavior. Cox contends the city failed to adequately train and discipline Wyatt at the Police Bureau for earlier "misuse of force." The suit does not identify those cases/Maxine Bernstein, Oregonian.

Question: What do you make of this lawsuit?
