Flagstaff man sues police department over wrongful arrest

FLAGSTAFF — A Flagstaff man who was wrongfully arrested on suspicion of selling LSD has sued the city, alleging police ignored evidence that showed he wasn’t a drug dealer.

Tremayne Nez, who is Navajo, spent more than 30 hours in jail after being arrested last June as part of a multi-agency drug operation. Police have said his arrest was a case of mistaken identity and apologized.
