Lawsuit filed in police officer attack


The police sergeant assaulted by a former student at the University of Iowa is now suing the attacker.

Police arrested Branden Plummer for choking Iowa City Sgt. Brian Krei in November 2011.  Plummer also slammed the officer's head into the pavement.

Plummer was originally charged with attempted murder, but sentenced on reduced charges in November 2012.

Plummer served a total of 60 days in jail, but will always be known as a felon.

Now... Sergeant Krei is suing Plummer for damages, including pain and suffering, lost wages and future earning capacity.
