Houston Man Who Says He Was Beaten By Officer While Handcuffed Sues The City

The Houston Police Department is facing another lawsuit alleging police brutality.

The lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court in Houston Sunday says officers pulled Aundre Howard over for an expired registration on July 7, 2019, then handcuffed and searched him.

When he ran, the suit alleges, HPD officer Lucas Vieira told another officer, Thomas Serrano, to shoot Howard and beat him over the head with a pair of handcuffs. It says Howard was so scared he defecated and officers then allegedly pulled down his pants in public view and made fun of him.

At a news conference held outside HPD headquarters Monday, Howard said he was lucky to be alive.

"I'm thankful to be here after I went through what I went through," he said. "People (have) been going through it, so it's nothing new to me. I'm not even surprised."
