    Taylor police face lawsuit alleging excessive force against Black motorist

    A federal lawsuit alleging excessive force was filed Friday on behalf of a Black motorist and his girlfriend against the city of Taylor and five of its police officers.

    The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court in Detroit on behalf of Imani Ringgold-D’Abell and his girlfriend, La’Shanna Taylor against the city of Taylor and Taylor police officers Jeffrey Adamisin, Nicholas Sellitti, Anthony Paredes, Thomas Haverlock and James Pilchak. 

    Taylor spokesperson Karl Ziomek declined to comment on the lawsuit.

    Ringgold-D’Abell was pulled over as he drove his SUV on Sept. 13, 2019 with Taylor and the couple’s three-year-old daughter, who was in the backseat, on the way to a dentist appointment for the child, according to the lawsuit.

    He had recently moved from Illinois to Michigan to be closer to Taylor’s family, according to the lawsuit, and had recently purchased a used Audi SUV and received a temporary registration permit that was valid for 90 days, through Sept. 27, 2019.
