Police beating victim files suit

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - A man who whose beating by five Birmingham police officers was caught on video at the end of a high-speed chase has filed a lawsuit against the officers, the chief of police and the city.

The suit was filed Tuesday in Birmingham district court by Anthony Warren's attorney, Wendy Crew.

It seeks monetary damages and asks the court to order changes in police officer training.

The January 2008 beating, while Warren was apparently unconscious, was captured on a police dash camera video.

A version that included the beating was not discovered by local prosecutors until March and made public last week.

The five officers were fired and police chief A.C. Roper ordered an internal investigation to determine if others knew about the beating but did not report it.
