Eagles Fan Sues

Cop Smashed My Face at Concert

This is enough to make anyone "hate the f***ing Eagles, man" -- a fan claims a cop arrested her for NO REASON at an Eagles concert ... after smashing her face and breaking her elbow.

Jamie Voelk is accusing Officer Molly Fischer of doing the damage last year in Minneapolis, and she's now filed a lawsuit -- obtained by TMZ -- claiming Fischer's excessive force put her in the hospital.

Voelk was at the concert minding her own business when an event security guard bumped into her, and then Fischer pounced, immediately escorting her outside ... according to the suit.

In the docs, Voelk claims Fischer slammed her face into a metal storefront curtain, fractured her elbow ... and then placed her under arrest.

Voelk was later booked for "obstruction of the legal process" ... but in her suit she claims the charge is slated for dismissal. 

Voelk is suing Fischer, the city of Minneapolis, the police department, and AEG ... the concert promoter ... for excessive force, false arrest, battery, and infliction of emotional distress. She wants at least $50,000.

I only see a fan that was most likely drunk.

most likely was drunk and thinks she was nice and well behaved and in reality may have ticked the police off to much

We're under attack by the very people paid to protect us from crime. The internet is full of police brutality videos.
Our only hope is that we're not in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Her eyes are dilated she's probably on meth... And doesn't hurt to shower and wash your hair before a concert...

When it comes to who to believe: the person or the police it's hard to know who's telling the truth bc anyone can lie . But if she's going to all this trouble: suing the city, the police, the AEG, I tend to believe her, but no one knows the 100% truth except the people that were there...

9 times out of 10, cops lie to cover their a@@. It's sad actually.. Women cops always feel they have to prove them selves in a male dominated job..hopefully the truth comes out.. A badge doesn't make you God....

If her face was slammed into a metal storefront curtain, why isn't there a single mark on her face? Not cuts, no bruises, no redness, no swelling.

I don't see any difference from her normal face that must have been run over by a car.

A quick skim of the headline, I automatically assumed "Philadelphia Eagles fan.." & thought, "... and today is a day & rain comes from clouds." My bad.

She was drunk or on drugs. Why is this the Eagles fault ? They have nothing to do with it.

Breaking her elbow seems excessive, but unless she has video or some damn good witnesses, it is probably tough to win...unless it is cheaper for everyone to settle out of court.
