VERNON — An Alabama man is suing the city of Vernon and the local police department months after a jury acquitted him of attempted murder.
The Tuscaloosa News reported Jamison Carr filed a civil lawsuit last week in federal court saying he was falsely arrested and his civil rights were violated. He's seeking $1 million in compensation.
A jury found Carr not guilty of attempted murder and second-degree assault last October. Police had arrested him at a car wash in February 2012 after a confrontation with another man.
