Syracuse (WSYR-TV) – A disabled Syracuse man who was tased by police after he refused to sit on a Centro bus is suing multiple agencies.

Brad Hulett is suing Syracuse Police, Centro, the Onondaga County Sheriff’s Office, and Rural Metro Ambulance – seeking damages for injuries and civil rights violations.

Over the summer, surveillance video surfaced showing Brad Hulett’s being tased on a bus by police.

The officers responded to the bus after the driver complained that Hulett refused to sit.

In August, his lawyer, Rick Guy, said that they intended to sue multiple institutions.

He was initially charged with resisting arrest and disorderly conduct, but the charges were dropped by the District Attorney’s office due to insufficient evidence.
