The guard is suing the Minnesota State Patrol for arrest during the protests
A black man who worked as a security guard for a CNN crew that covered protests in Minneapolis after George Floyd’s death last summer is suing two Minnesota State Patrol officers, accusing them of violating his civil rights and illegal imprisonment, shared his lawyers on Tuesday. The lawsuit was filed in federal court last Thursday on behalf of Michael Cooper, a 64-year-old retired Illinois State Police veteran. Cooper was jailed for nearly 20 hours on suspicion of carrying a hidden weapon without permission and violating a curfew, but he was never charged, the complaint said.
