The man, Brady Mistic, said he was wrongfully jailed for four months over the incident on Sept. 17, 2019.

Unaware that police had followed him into the parking lot, Mistic got out of his vehicle and began walking toward the laundromat, according to the lawsuit.

"He had no idea what was happening, what the police were doing, or if the officers' presence had anything to do with him.".

Mistic stopped walking and used his hands in an attempt to communicate with the officers, the lawsuit says.

Police said Mistic was taken to the hospital for an evaluation and then transferred to the Clear Creek County jail. »
