Baton Rouge cop sues DeRay McKesson over BLM rally
A Baton Rouge police officer is suing DeRay McKesson over a Black Lives Matter rally on July 9, according to TMZ.
According to the officer, who is filing as a John Doe, the rally-goers were blocking the streets, and police were called to the scene. While responding, the officer claims that he and other officers were hit with bottles looted from a nearby store before someone grabbed a rock or piece of concrete and threw it at him.
The officer claims to have injured his jaw and brain in attention to losing some teeth, and he is suing for medical bills and damages, claiming that McKesson incited the crowd to violence.
