A Dade County woman is suing a sheriff's deputy and state trooper claiming they recently used excessive force.

Kiersten Quick filed the suit against Dade County deputy Denny Reyes and GSP Trooper Joseph Geddie.

According to the suit, Quick's daughter was involved in a crash back in November.

The suit claims Trooper Geddie put her in handcuffs when he saw her license had expired.

The lawsuit says Quick cursed when she arrived but didn't raise her voice.

Geddie told her to move back and eventually slammed her on the ground and arrested her for obstruction and other charges.

They were eventually dropped.

The suit names Reyes as a participant in the arrest.

It asks for a jury trial and unspecified amount of damages.

Read the full lawsuit below.

We contacted both the Georgia State Patrol and the Dade County Sheriff's Department for a comment on this lawsuit.

The GSP responded, "The Georgia Department of Public Safety does not comment on litigation, neither on-going nor pending."

The Dade Co. Sheriff's Department replied, "DCSO doesn't comment on incidents that are pending litigation. Deputy Reyes is still active in the department and performing his normal duties."

Depend on us to keep you posted.
