My question involves police conduct in the State of: California
I am a divorced parent and was recently attending my daughter's sporting event, as I had many times before. My ex wife and I just recently went to court where I had successfully modified support. My ex wife told people at the game that I was violating a court order by being at the game (there is no such order). One guy came up, put his hands on me, said he was an off duty officer and said I have to leave. I asked for identification and he said he didn't have any with him, it was in his car. I agreed to leave until the authorities came and would clear it up, but said I would say goodbye to my daughter first. At that point I was thrown in a choke hold and forcefully removed from the field. At no time did I say or do anything that would be considered aggessive. I would like to file civil charges against this off-duty officer, but am having difficulty finding the code that governs off duty police conduct. Thanks for any help.
