Au­thor­i­ties: Of­fi­cer at­tacked woman, falsely ar­rested her

The Progress-Index Weekend - - FRONT PAGE -

Au­thor­i­ties say a Cleve­land po­lice of­fi­cer at­tacked a woman and had her ar­rested for as­sault­ing a po­lice of­fi­cer.

Sgt. Christo­pher Gra­ham, of Welling­ton, was charged Thurs­day with mis­de­meanor as­sault and un­law­ful re­straint. He pleaded not guilty dur­ing a court ap­pear­ance Fri­day morn­ing.

A Cleve­land po­lice In­ter­nal Af­fairs de­tec­tive wrote in court pa­pers that the 38-yearold Gra­ham as­saulted the woman Sept. 12 and then had her ar­rested on the felony as­sault charge.

Cleve­ re­ports that Cleve­land paid set­tle­ments in two law­suits filed against Gra­ham that ac­cused him of mis­us­ing his po­lice power.
