Jamar Gladden, appearing pro se and proceeding in forma pauperis, filed this
civil action under 42 U.S.C. § 1983, alleging that Defendant R.A. Oberholzer, a police officer for the City of Charlottesville, used excessive force against Gladden during a traffic stop on July 29, 2015.
On February 6, 2019, Gladden filed a one-count complaint alleging that Oberholzer violated his Fourth and Fourteenth Amendment rights. Gladden claims that he suffered a broken tooth, at least one cut requiring stitches, and a dislocated shoulder.
Gladden complied. Instead of restraining Gladden’s wrists, however, Oberholzer “grabbed [him] around the neck with his forearm in a ‘choke hold’ fashion” and “used his body weight to throw” Gladden to the ground. Oberholzer kept choking Gladden and holding him down while unknown “detectives kicked, punched[,] and struck” him.
