According to the Arizona Republic, A Phoenix couple was aggressively arrested by police when their daughter mistakenly walked outside a Dollar Store with a doll. The couple is now suing the city of Phoenix for $10 million, claiming that the officers involved committed battery and emotional distress.
Jay Z stepped in to help the couple. Roc Nation offered to provide legal support and confirmed that they secured high-profile attorney Alex Spiro to join the family’s legal team pro-bono.
“There is no place for that behavior in our world – let alone our justice system – and we are calling for the immediate termination of the police officers in question,” Roc Nation Managing Director of Philanthropy Dania Diaz said of the incident. “We are committed to supporting the family to ensure that justice is served.”
