Surveillance Video of Cassandra Feuerstein's Arrest

A Chicago woman has sued the Village of Skokie and one of its police officers after she was seriously injured after being shoved headfirst into a concrete jail cell bench. Part of the incident was recorded on a jailhouse video camera. Feuerstein required facial reconstructive surgery and the insertion of a titanium plate to replace the bones that had been shattered.

After massive amounts of pressure from the media and citizens of Chicago, Michael Hart was eventually placed on suspension and was finally arrested and charged with Aggravated Battery and Official Misconduct, but was released the same day.

Hart did not show any remorse in a media interview following his suspension and arrest.

Former Skokie police Officer Michael Hart was sentenced to two years of probation as part of a plea deal.
