The mother of a 14-year-old high school student has charged in a lawsuit that an Allentown cop grabbed her daughter from behind after school let out in September and fired a taser at her pelvic area.
The lawsuit, filed in federal district court in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania last week, alleged that Police Officer Jason Ammary did not identify himself as a lawman or accost two companions Keshana Wilson was walking with side by side at the time of the alleged incident.
After grabbing Wilson, Ammary "violently pushed" her into the side of a parked vehicle and used his right forearm to push it into her throat, the lawsuit said.

When Ammary grabbed his taser, Wilson "raised her two hands high into the air to indicate surrender" and said, "no," according to the lawsuit.
After being hit twice by the taser, the lawsuit said Wilson fell to the ground "in intense pain" while Ammary berated her for her "perceived socio-economic status."
Ammary subsequently ordered a school security guard to handcuff the girl, which exacerbated the pain from the taser, the lawsuit said.
The incident, which occurred on Sept. 29 outside Dieruff High School, was captured by a city video camera, the lawsuit said.
The city solicitor was not immediately available for comment and has declined comment on the lawsuit to other media outlets.
After the incident, Wilson was taken to St. Luke's Hospital's emergency room.
The lawsuit alleges "intentional deprivation" of Wilson's constitutional rights by Ammary, which caused Wilson mental pain, suffering, sleeplessness and humiliation, and seeks unspecified punitive damages.
The lawsuit said the city was aware Ammary was a "rogue officer who could not be trusted" prior to the incident involving Wilson and had failed to properly train him.
After the incident, the lawsuit alleged that Ammary tried to cover up the tasing of a minor by filing charges of aggravated assault and reckless endangerment against Wilson.
The suit says the charges were "unfounded" but provides no information about their adjudication.
