A $1.9 million federal lawsuit has been filed against the city police department and a city police officer alleging that the officer got mad when a motorist behind her tooted his horn after she did not move when the light turned green.
Larry Ballanger filed the suit that names Cristina Henderson as a defendant.
The suit alleges false arrest and false imprisonment.
The complaint, filed by attorney Curtis Bowe, says Mr. Ballanger was on his way to work on the afternoon of April 23, 2010, when he got behind a patrol car driven by officer Henderson.
It says the light at 6106 Lee Highway turned green and three cars passed, but the officer kept looking down. It was then that Mr. Ballanger blew his horn.
The suit says the officer immediately pulled off the road and got behind the Ballanger vehicle. She followed him over two miles to the entrance to the Brainerd Walmart, then engaged her blue lights and stopped him.

Douche bag on her cell phone gets honked at, affirmative action cop or not.
That's the way it is.
My first thought is how these guys are retaliatory and if you go to his supervisor he could get all his buds to lie in wait and harass you and your family. Then again, his supervisor might be grateful you brought this to his attention.
You might consider speaking to a criminal lawyer about this, if you can find one who is competent. And tell EVERYBODY you know who lives in your area what happened and who the cop is.
The thing of it is, if this officer continues to get away with this type of behavior, he’ll either continue to harass innocent citizens or go on to do worse things.
I’m glad you are all right anyway. And you don’t deserve to be treated this way.
The lower the qualifications to be a LEO the lower the quality of the department. It really can’t drop much further.
DO NOT WAIT~!!!!!!!!!!!!!
AT BARE MINIMUM FILE A COMPLAINT~@!@!@!@!@!
THIS WOULD GET THEM TO NOTICE HIM AND BE GOOD WRITTEN HISTORY FOR WHEN THEY FIRE HIS ASS
BEFORE HE DOES THIS TO ANYONE ELSE
As a side note, I once got a flat tire in the middle of the desert in arizona- an officer pulled over on a side street- climbed a barbed wire fence (and cut himself) to bring over a jack and some water and help me change my tire (it was a new truck- I didnt notice missing jack)
I wrote a NICE thank you letter to his CO
Be sure to thank the good ones, especially in writing
I've heard that they actually have an upper limit on intelligence to be a cop. They don't want people who may get bored on the job.
They’ve attained their goal!
