L.A. Now Live: Judge accuses UCLA police of excessive force

November 26, 2013

Join Times staff writer Richard Winton on Tuesday at 9 a.m. for a L.A. Now Live chat about a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge who has made claims of excessive force by the UCLA Police Department.

David S. Cunningham III is not only a judge but the former president of the Los Angeles Police Commission and a onetime federal civil rights attorney.

Winton reported that Cunningham found himself handcuffed in the back of a UCLA police car on Saturday morning. Officers had pulled him over as he was driving his Mercedes out of his Westwood gym because, police said, he wasn't wearing his seat belt.

What happened next is a matter of dispute, but it ended with the African American judge yelling about police brutality to a growing crowd in the heart of Westwood Village.

Join us for the online chat about Cunningham's claim of excessive force in the case. Readers can submit questions and comments, and we'll get to as many of them as we can.
