A former police officer has recently filed a federal lawsuit against the city of Warrensville Heights.

Nakia Jones is suing on claims of racial discrimination while on the force and on allegations of retaliation for posting an opinionated social media video about two officer-involved shootings.

Jones described in the July 2016 video her views on the death of Alton Sterling, an African-American man who was shot during a struggle with two white police officers, went viral with more than 8 million views. She also commented on a similar shooting involving a black male in Minnesota.

The lawsuit, which was filed on March 20, 2018, names Warrensville Heights Mayor Brad Sellers and Chief of Police Wesley Haynes as defendants.
