A 16-year-old boy and his family have filed a lawsuit against the town of Rotterdam, New York, seeking $1 million in damages after two police officers broke the teen's arm.
The incident was caught on camera back in October. It all started when police were called by Jacob Gocheski's school bus driver who said that he didn't feel he could safely transport the mentally ill student to school because of "threats that the student made in an aggressive manner."
The bus was in the driveway of Gocheski's home when the incident unfolded, and police can be seen on video attempting to get Gocheski off the bus. The two officers had difficulty getting him to respond, so they used physical force to pull him off the bus. Disturbingly, the officers go to place the teen's arms behind him and wind up breaking one arm. It's clear to see that the boy's arm has been broken, and even sound of the bone snapping is clearly audible.
