In the suit, Williams’ attorneys alleges he was racially profiled by police when he was shot with the Taser gun on his back and has suffered and continues to suffer severe head, neck, shoulder and head pain” as well as “crippling anxiety” and “substantial shame, embarrassment, mental and physical suffering.” ABC reports he is seeking more than $75,000 in damages.

Williams says even though he was following the cops’ instructions, according to the lawsuit, the police report said Officer Philip Bernot used the Taser because Williams “failed to follow instructions.”
