An Aliquippa man claims in a federal lawsuit filed today that he was simply standing on a street corner when two police officers attacked and injured him.

Daniel W. King, age unavailable, says in the lawsuit that Aliquippa police Officer Robert Sealock threw him to the ground and repeatedly kicked him, and Officer Kenneth Watkins shocked him with a Taser at least four times. After the police chief arrived on the scene, the officers left without filing any charges against King, the lawsuit claims.

King is suing the city and the two police officers.

Aliquippa`s solicitor and police chief couldn`t be reached for comment.
