POLICE MISCONDUCT ATTORNEY NEWPORT BEACHPOLICE MISCONDUCT ATTORNEY NEWPORT BEACH, CALIFORNIA

The Newport Beach Police Department is a very cruel and brutal entity. There is almost no limit what they will do to protect themselves from the victims of their outrages. They beat, falsely arrest and procure the malicious criminal prosecutions of their victims. Mr. Steering has been suing the Newport Beach Police Department since 1986; successfully.

NEWPORT BEACH POLICE ARE NOT YOUR FRIEND, AND THEY ARE NOT THERE TO HELP YOU; ONLY THEM.

Newport Beach Police have a long history of falsely arresting, beating and killing innocents. If you want to get beaten-up and falsely arrested by the police, just go to Newport Beach on the 4th of July, make some noise and see what happens. Chances are that you will be falsely arrested and minimally roughed-up, and then taken in a Paddy Wagon to jail for public intoxication and resisting arrest.

Ashley WattsFor example in Ashley Watts v. City of Newport Beach, Newport Beach Police Department police officers were summoned to Ashley Watts’ apartment complex, in response to a call for service for a taxi driver complaining that Ms. Watts didn’t pay for her $16.00 cab ride.

When the NBPD officers arrived at the scene, they taxi driver complained that Ashley Watts’ credit card had been declined. Ashley Watts’ credit card company had deactivated her card due to fraudulent activity on the credit card. The credit card company had issued Ashley Watts a new credit card to replace the one deactivated, but when she left her home that night, she accidentally grabbed the old credit card.

When she took the cab home that evening, she believed that she had the active card, but that was not the case. When she arrived at home in the cab, her credit card was declined. The cabbie call the police, and when the Newport Beach Police Department arrived, they accused Ms. Watts of “defrauding an innkeeper”; something untrue, and something that would not apply to failing to pay a taxi driver anyway.

The officers told Ms. Watts that they would not permit her to go to her apartment to get the cash to pay for the cab ride, and that if she didn’t pay the cabbie now that she was going to jail. Ms. Watts then cried so much, that the officers finally allowed her to go to her house to get the money to pay for the cab ride.

The officers followed her to her apartment, and Ms. Watts entered the same. When the officers then walked inside of her apartment, Ms. Watts told them that she didn’t invite them in, and the officers closed the door behind them and told Ms. Watts “Then you’re going to jail”. The officers then slammed Ms. Watts against the wall of her apartment, slammed her on the floor and took her to jail. See, Newport Beach Pays $360,000 to Woman Falsely Arrested over $16 Cab Ride.
