Judge throws out excessive force lawsuit against APD

Posted: Updated:
ARLINGTON, Texas -

A federal judge rejected the lawsuit by the family of a teenage girl against an Arlington police officer.

Officer Dylan Eckstrom took the girl to the ground as he and other officers broke up a fight outside a club in August of 2012.

The family of then 15-year-old Kelcey Perry sued over what they called excessive force.

The judge agreed with Arlington police that the officer acted properly.
