The Incident: Assault and False Charges
Gabe* was walking with friends in an inner-city suburb one night when police officers alleged that he yelled abuse at them. A confrontation ensued, during which the police placed Gabe on the ground and one officer jumped on his knee, causing significant pain.
They then arrested him and charged him with using offensive language in a public place and assaulting a police officer in the execution of duty.
