Lawsuit: Louisville ICE agents gave man a 'gang beating' until he was unconscious

Citing excessive force and constitutional violations, a man is suing U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and numerous agents for allegedly beating him unconscious and fracturing his skull earlier this year outside his Louisville home.

Mario Portales-Castro's lawsuit, filed Dec. 6 in U.S. District Court, says he was trying to leave for work on Aug. 20 when Louisville ICE agents approached him outside his home and told him to get out of his truck while their guns were drawn.

Portales-Castro, 45, got out with his hands in the air, but the ICE agents who the suit claims had not yet identified themselves "immediately started punching him repeatedly in the head."

Once on the ground, the agents began kicking Portales-Castro in the head, fracturing his skull and causing him to become unconscious. It was when he was on the ground that they said they were with ICE, according to the lawsuit.

2. "The agents also said they beat Portales-Castro because of his criminal record..."

"... according to the lawsuit."

WTF - it doesn't matter what his past was - he was not resisting or committing a crime at the time of the beating - so far as we know now.

Of course, the lawsuit only has one side, but he certainly did not spontaneously get a fractured skull.
