Former Bainbridge police officer and his wife sue city

The officer, who resigned in 2008, is asking for $1 million in damages. His wife is also suing for unlawful arrest and other claims. One of their sons recently filed a third claim against the city alleging that police used excessive force when arresting him during a 2007 traffic stop.
