DALLAS (AP) — A Dallas police officer who won reinstatement to the force last year is suing the city and police Chief David Brown for full back pay.

Officer Jesus Martinez was fired in 2014 after a bystander videotaped him pinning a panhandler to the ground. A grand jury decided not to charge Martinez with misdemeanor official oppression and he was reinstated by a civil service review board.

But Martinez and his attorneys in the lawsuit filed Thursday argue the city failed to fully reimburse him by deducting income he had made during his appeal. The lawsuit also seeks damages for suffering and undermining his reputation.

Community members rallied around Martinez during his appeal, making T-shirts that said, “Save Jesus.”

City officials did not respond to messages seeking comment.
