Lawsuit: Chicago police hit, yelled at woman

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Associated Press) -

A tanning salon manager has filed a federal lawsuit against Chicago police and the city claiming officers hit her and shouted racial threats during a raid on the business.

The Chicago Sun-Times obtained a copy of the security camera video from the defense attorney for Jianqing "Jessica" Klyzek. It appears to show an officer strike Klyzek while she was handcuffed and another officer yelling insults. Klyzek is a naturalized U.S. citizen from China.

Police spokesman Adam Collins says the Independent Police Review Authority is investigating. He called the officers' comments "completely intolerable," if true.

A police report states the 2013 raid was prompted when a masseuse allegedly offered an undercover officer a sex act.

The lawsuit says charges were dismissed against Klyzek for scratching and punching the officers.
