A Danville man who claims police used excessive force while arresting him at a party is now suing the city of Chico because of it. The suit says Arash Ak-Barieh, 21, should never have been arrested in the first place. The incident happened in February. The suit also alleges the officer's actions resulted in a dislocated knee and were driven by racist motivations. Ak-Barieh, who is of Persian decent, claims one officer asked him where he was from because, quote, "You don't sound American." City officials are not commenting.
