Cops Tried to Falsely Arrest Pre-Teen After Assaulting Him at His Home, Lawsuit Alleges

A $20 million lawsuit filed Tuesday against the town and members of the police department claims police conspired to falsely arrest a 12-year-old boy after he was assaulted by an officer at his home.

The lawsuit stems from an incident that occurred on Nov. 15 when Lisa Freeman, a social worker with the Department of Children and Families, called police to the home of Karla Huaman to assist with getting Huaman's son to a court-ordered psychological evaluation related to a truancy problem.
