Excessive Force Trial Begins

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.- Opening statements began Monday in a lawsuit against the City of Kennewick that could cost the city millions of dollars.

Ken Rogers says a Kennewick Police K-9 wrongfully attacked him leaving him partially disabled four years ago.

The City contends that it's a simple case of mistaken identity.

Rogers wasn't the man they were looking for, but they say the officers took the necessary protocols, and everything at that point led to him.
