Phoenix man al­legedly forced by po­lice to eat pot sues city

PHOENIX — A Phoenix man who says he was forced by po­lice to eat mar­i­juana or go to jail has filed a law­suit against the city and the three ex-of­fi­cers in­volved.

Edgar Cas­tro’s suit seeks undis­closed puni­tive and com­pen­satory dam­ages. At­tor­neys for the 20-year-old Cas­tro say their client’s civil rights were vi­o­lated.

His lawyers filed a no­tice of claim in the case in Fe­bru­ary and that pre­cur­sor to a law­suit sought $3.5 mil­lion.

Cas­tro was pulled over for speed­ing in Septem­ber 2016 and po­lice of­fi­cers re­ported find­ing a small amount of mar­i­juana in his car.

Ac­cord­ing to the law­suit, Cas­tro be­came sick and vom­ited af­ter in­gest­ing the mar­i­juana.

The three po­lice of­fi­cers in­volved re­signed from the force shortly af­ter the in­ci­dent.
