Was left permanently disabled

An Illinois woman says she was brutally assaulted by a group of local police officers, and now she is suing the department and the Village of Oswego over a traumatizing incident two years ago that allegedly left her permanently disabled.

According to a complaint filed this week and first obtained by Courthouse News Service, cops in the Chicago suburb of Oswego are responsible for viciously beating 44-year-old registered nurse Bonny Flerlage and her family in the midst of a medical emergency.

On the evening of August 25, 2011, the complaint alleges, Ms. Flerlage pulled her car to the side of the road and ran to rescue her son, 23-year-old Austin Decowski, who was acting belligerent to such a degree that his mother assumed he had been drugged.
