A woman arrested and jailed on a criminal mischief charge last year claims in a federal lawsuit filed today that several Pittsburgh police officers and Allegheny County Jail guards beat her up.
Rachel Neil, 34, address unavailable, says in the lawsuit that the unidentified officers and guards attacked her on Jan. 5, 2011, while she was being held prior to her arraignment.
Her attorney, Patrick Murray, said they anticipate identifying the people involved in the incident as the lawsuit progresses.
Neil is suing the county, city, former warden Ramon Rustin and the unnamed guards and officers. Solicitors for the county and city couldn't immediately be reached for comment.
