PSU student files lawsuit against police

By: WJAC Web Staff


A Penn State University student is suing State College police, claiming he was mistreated by them during a November 2011 riot after Joe Paterno was fired.

The Centre Daily Times reports that Matthew Maser filed the federal lawsuit on Friday.

Maser claims that two officers threw him against a mailbox, grabbed his wallet and took his student ID.

The charges filed against Maser that night were dismissed in September 2012.

Maser said he wants to be compensated because he was unlawfully detained and a victim of excessive force.
