Former Yakima Police Officer Plans to Sue City for Four Million Dollars

Yakima, WA -  A former Yakima Police Officer files a four million dollar damage claim against the city.

It's a potentially expensive lawsuit -- that comes at a time when the city has been forced to make budget cuts this year.

In the claim, Jeff Brownfield says he was forced to submit to several unnecessary medical exams after he went to Police Chief Sam Granato about unlawful activities at the department.

The city ruled Brownfield unfit for duty and fired him in April.

Brownfield alleges negligent hiring and supervision on the part of his supervisors.
