Skokie officials say one of their officers is confined to desk duty after a Chicago woman claims he used excessive force and seriously injured her.

The lawyer for 47-year-old Cassandra Feuerstein says her client was shoved by an officer and her head hit a bench, breaking several bones in her face.

Feuerstein had been arrested for drunk driving.

She is suing the Village of Skokie and officer Michael Hart.
