Nate Allen of the Raiders is suing the Fort Myers Police Department

Last month, Oakland Raiders newly signed defensive back Nate Allen was detained by police in his hometown of Fort Myers, Florida, when a teenage girl called 911 to say she saw a man masturbating in a truck. Allen was cleared and police acknowledged they had detained the wrong man, but Allen was heavily scrutinized.  His name was blasted in the newspapers saying he was arrested for public masturbation and now the former Eagles cornerback is suing the police department. 

Allen will sue the Fort Myers Police Department, his lawyer told TMZ, saying, “he’s a fighter, and he’s going to stand up for this community and its residents to have a fair shake when they interact with law enforcement.”

Allen was recently signed by the Raiders, but he has my vote for this suing, what about you?
