Backe sues over Galveston wedding

The Houston Press is reporting that Brandon Backe, and 11 other members of the wedding party, have filed suit against 20 members of the Galveston Police Department and the City of Galveston.

Read the story - there's all sorts of sordid behavior alleged by the victims, tasering, kicking, punching, shoving pregnant women.

Many people were hurt during the incident. One member of the wedding party was taken by helicopter to the hospital with skull, face and torso injuries.

More than five months after the fight, the Galveston PD disciplined 13 officers, nine of which were suspended without pay for several days. The other four officers received a written reprimand.
