Jay Z - Providing Assistance to Family From Police Threat
The bystander video went viral and apparently, it’s caught the attention of Jay-Z, who is reportedly lending his legal services to the family. Team ROC has hired high-powered attorney Alex Spiro to work on behalf of the family and is calling for the termination of the police officers involved in the incident.
The claim filed by Ames and Harper allege that the officers committed battery, unlawful imprisonment (after the two were reportedly arrested and taken into custody), false arrest and other civil rights violations. The family is seeking $10 million in damages – $2.5 million for each person in the car at the start of the incident.
