A Northport man claims he was beaten by Homewood police officers last month while he was detained after a traffic stop, but police say he's a “multi-state offender” and suffered minor injuries after resisting arrest.

Attorneys for Timothy Stewart, 27, spoke at a press conference Thursday morning and announced Stewart will be filing a federal lawsuit if the city of Homewood does not settle his case within 60 days. They said the city has been served with a notice of intent to file suit.

Homewood police officials said they have not received any official complaint for Stewart nor a notice of claim from any representative of Stewart, or any notice of a filed lawsuit.

Carlos Moore, William Bell, and Jim Bushnell of the Mike Bell Firm are representing Stewart. They are seeking $1 million in damages and- if the case goes to trial- an injunction against Homewood police to prevent future incidents of abuse. They said they haven't received an incident report.
