The city of Phoenix is facing a $10 million legal claim accusing city police officers of civil rights violations during an arrest involving an alleged shoplifting. The suit accuses officers of pointing guns and yelling profane commands at a father and pregnant mother after they said their 4-year-old young daughter took a doll from a Family Dollar store without their knowledge. Parents Dravon Ames and Iesha Harper said an officer injured their 1-year-old daughter after Harper would not respond to an officer’s command to put the child down.
