Here's the rest of the Trevor Casey story. It seems that I was only partially right - 14 year old Trevor decided to get high on pot and run his smart mouth to the Toledo Police, with predictable results. Here's the link to the story in the Toledo Blade:
You know, I'm not a big fan of the Toledo Police, but so far I can't fault them for this one. Trevor got what he deserved, and the real crime is that the city will have to defend itself against a frivolous lawsuit.

In speaking with David Casey, a brother of Trevor Casey; David states, “Trevor underwent a series of test, and was seen by an ophthalmologist who had to come in from Bowling Green. Trevor was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder. He has loss of vision in his left eye, as well as blood clots in his eyes.”
David Casey also says, “The ophthalmologist stated that in examining Trevor, the findings show that during the incident, Trevor's eyeballs were looking down, which indicates that the officers may have been hitting him from behind.”
Lastly, David Casey asserts, “While my sisters were outside of St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center...one of the Toledo Police Officers involved in the incident, Officer Byron Daniels, drove up. He was in a marked police vehicle and in uniform. He got out of the vehicle, taunted my Aunt Penny Woodard and my brother Christopher Casey, and then got back into the squad car and drove off. One would think that considering the situation at hand, Officer Byron Daniels would have respect for the family during this time.”
