The Fullerton, California, Police Department was accused Friday of a third case of brutality.
The incident involves the same officer accused of being among several involved in the beating death of a 37-year-old homeless man this summer.
In the latest allegation Friday, the officer is accused of assaulting and falsely accusing a 27-year-old man of being drunk in public, said Garo Mardirossian, the alleged victim's attorney.
Edward Miguel Quinonez, 27, of Anaheim, California, is planning to file a lawsuit against the Fullerton police officer for "slamming" his head against the wall in a June 27, 2010, incident, Mardirossian told reporters during a press conference.
Coincidentally, Quinonez happened to be one of about 100 witnesses to the police struggle with Kelly Thomas, the 37-year-old homeless man, who died five days later, and even saw one of the officers was the same who had arrested him last year, Quinonez said. Quinonez was interviewed by prosecutors investigating the homeless man's death, his attorney said.
In the 2010 incident, the officer was writing a ticket to a motorist for bouncing his lowrider and displaying its hydraulics as Quinonez happened to be on the sidewalk, waiting outside a bar, Quinonez told reporters Friday.

So surely they’ll put him on a desk now, right? right?
What’s 380 pound, fat weezing and struggling to breathe, union idiot, going to do to save me?
I’ll have to save him.
Looks like the best cop in Fullerton has four legs:
The FPD probably sodomized the poor thing by now.
