Man has brain surgery after alleged police beating

December 16, 2011 (CHICAGO)

Attorneys for Charles Smith say the 50-year-old suffered broken bones to his face and knocked out teeth during the arrest with officers.

They are the same attorneys who filed a federal lawsuit on Tuesday, claiming North Chicago police brutalized Darrin Hanna, who died last month.

North Chicago police deny using excessive force in both cases.
