Man sues officers, city over 2012 DWI arrest

An Austin man claiming that two police officers using excessive force broke his wrist during an arrest in 2012 has sued the officers and the city of Austin.

The suit, filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court, is from John Pharr, a 23-year-old whom police arrested Aug. 14, 2012, after a traffic stop near 12th Street and Airport Boulevard in East Austin.
