Pittsburgh_officers_accused_of_beating_teen_are_suspended_ex-thumb-400xauto-6229

Jordan Miles, a black teen who attended Pittsburgh’s prestigious Creative and Performing Arts High School, has filed a federal lawsuit saying three white Pittsburgh police officers wrongfully beat him in January, then conspired to file false charges against him and concocted a cover story for their actions.

The city is not commenting on the lawsuit filed by Miles on Monday in U.S. District Court.

Miles claims the officers assumed he was a troublemaker because of his race and beat him without cause. Miles says in the lawsuit he thought he was being kidnapped by the plainclothes officers, and muttered “The Lord’s Prayer” out of fear as they allegedly beat him.

Miles, an 18-year-old high school student, hopes to go to college to study crime scene investigation, and played the viola at the performing arts school. Miles was charged Jan. 13 with assault and resisting arrest and his family says he was hospitalized after being hit with a stun gun and suffering head lacerations. He claims that he resisted because he thought the men were trying to abduct him and didn’t identify themselves as police.
