Cheswick man sues Harmar, says police had wrong guy
A Cheswick man says in a federal lawsuit filed Monday that a Harmar police officer violated his civil rights by shocking him with a stun gun as he was running from police.
Anthony Pane, age unavailable, claims that police were looking for someone else, and the incident caused him embarrassment at school. He's suing the township and Officer Brian Coughlin. His lawyer, Gianni Floro, couldn't immediately be reached for comment.
Charles Means, Harmar's solicitor, declined comment.
