Police Abuse

The bizarre case of the Hollywood exec who claims cops beat him bloody, falsely accused him of being on bath salts and ultimately ruined his life went before a jury in federal court Tuesday.

Lawyers for former Universal Pictures co-chairman Brian Mulligan said in opening statements that the badly injured father of two brought his $20 million lawsuit against Los Angeles police because he was an innocent citizen needlessly brutalized by dirty cops.
