A former Beaver County resident claims in a federal lawsuit filed Monday that Harmony police arrested him twice without cause, costing him his job.

Tyrone Anthony Lett, 43, of Cecil says in the lawsuit that he was held in jail for 34 days. He first was arrested on assault charges that a district judge dismissed a week later, but police kept him in jail on an expired warrant out of California.

He is suing the township and officers James Essek and Jason Vular. A township spokeswoman couldn't be reached for comment.
