BELLEVILLE — A Caseyville man is suing Alorton law enforcement officials, alleging false arrest and false imprisonment. 

Ian Johnson filed a complaint Dec. 10 in St. Clair County Circuit Court against the Village of Alorton, detective Phillip Brooks and police chief Gerald Crenshaw, alleging the defendants intentionally interfered with his constitutional rights.

According to the complaint, Johnson claims he was falsely arrested and detained by the Alorton Police Department on Dec. 10, 2016. Johnson alleges he has suffered severe emotional distress and mental anguish. 

The plaintiff alleges the defendants arrested him without an arrest warrant and held him for more than 48 hours without charging him with any crime.

Johnson seeks trial by jury, compensatory and punitive damages, attorney fees, court costs and all other appropriate relief. He is represented by attorneys Dedra Brock-Moore and Nichele Moore of Belleville.
