According to the Louisville Courier-Journal, narcotics detective Brett Hankison allegedly harassed Kendrick Wilson, who said he was arrested multiple times for no reason.
Wilson is accusing Hankison of malicious prosecution, violating his constitutional rights in the lawsuit and is looking to be reimbursed for legal fees and punitive damages incurred during multiple arrests.
Wilson said the situation dates back to 2016 when Hankison worked as a security guard for a bar Wilson would frequent.
In the lawsuit, Wilson said they dated the same woman and Hankison later arrested him on an assault charge that was quickly thrown out.
In 2018, Hankison arrested Wilson again, this time planting drugs on him, according to the suit.
