Brian Mulligan, the Managing Director and Vice Chairman of Media for Deutsche Bank, has filed a $50 million lawsuit against the LAPD, after a brutal beat-down that left him virtually unrecognizable.
As reported by TMZ:
Mulligan is unrecognizable in the pics -- with severe nasal fractures and lacerations, a concussion, a fractured right scapula, and numerous contusions and abrasions.
Although the LAPD claims officers beat and arrested Mulligan after he became violent and threatening ... prosecutors declined to file charges.
Our sources say prosecutors believe the photos are "clear evidence of excessive force." Indeed, Mulligan already filed a $50 million claim against the City of L.A.
TMZ first reported, Mulligan claims two LAPD cops beat him senseless after wrongfully detaining him ... claiming he resembled a person suspected of attempted car theft.
Mulligan claims the officers took him to a hotel against his will and when he tried to leave, officers brutally attacked him.
Mulligan's lawyers also contest that the LAPD engaged in a cover up, saying they filed a police report justifying their use of excessive force.
