LAS VEGAS -- The Las Vegas Police Protective Association announced Wednesday it has filed a lawsuit against Metro police in connection to the standoff earlier this year at Cliven Bundy's ranch.
The 9-count complaint seeks an injunction, monetary damages, costs and attorney fees for Metro Officer Russell Laws and Sergeant Mike Quick.
Laws was demoted from the SWAT team to a patrol unit for violating the department's media policy, according to the complaint. Laws made a comment on social media about a picture he saw from the Bundy ranch showing two armed militia men. Laws wrote: I just wish you could see how big that guy prone with the rifles head was in the scope of the LE Snipers .308... don't worry, he wouldn't have felt a thing."
Sgt. Quick, also on SWAT was relieved of his duties for "alleged failure to appreciate the seriousness of Officer Law's actions."
