A St. Amant woman sued the City-Parish, Baton Rouge Police Department and Officer Robert Schilling in federal court Monday.

Melinda Morris alleged that Schilling wrongfully dragged her by her hair and charged her with battery on a police officer and resisting arrest after a motorcycle accident Sept. 10 on Nicholson Drive, near Lee Drive.

No dollar amount is specified in Morris’ claims, which were assigned to Chief U.S. District Judge Brian A. Jackson.
