Man files suit against AG, police chief, cops

Posted: Updated:

Guam - One man is seeking more than $3 million as he has filed a complaint against Attorney General Alicia Limtiaco, Guam Police Chief Paul Suba and police officers D.B. Anciano and Serafino Artui, claiming he was wrongfully arrested, detained and incarcerated. Court documents state that James L. Adkins was arrested for allegedly taking photos with his mobile phone of a car accident in his neighborhood in October.

Adkins is seeking damages of $1 million on the grounds that the police officers deprived him of his First, Fourth, Fifth, and Fourteenth Amendment rights. Adkins also stated that his wrongful arrest caused great mental anguish and suffering, physical injury, humiliation, shame and embarrassment, as well as damaging his good name and reputation.

Adkins has demanded that his case be taken up by a jury trial.
