A Chicago woman is suing suburban Skokie and one of its police officers, claiming the officer used unnecessary force during an arrest.

The lawyer for 47-year-old Cassandra Feuerstein says there are photos of her after the incident in March.

She was arrested for drunk driving and says at the jail. Skokie police officer Michael Hart shoved her and her head hit a concrete bench.

Feuerstein broke several bones in her face.

Her lawyer says hart made false statements claiming she had resisted arrest.

We were unable to get a reaction from Skokie officials.
