Both cases are being appealed by the defendants
through their attorney, David Hough.
The officers said that the residents interfered with
Foy's arrest at the 1700 block of Derry Street on April 26.
But the residents insisted that one officer, Ed Hurley, instigated
the incident when he grabbed Foy by the neck,
knocking him to the sidewalk and scraping his face on the
concrete, even though Foy was willingly going along with
arresting officer K.B. Leonard. The residents also said
they were assaulted by the police officers.
