NOTICE OF FORMAL COMPLAINT The City of Austin is committed to compliance with the American Disabilities Act. Reasonable modifications and equal access to communications will be provided upon request. ICMS #: 2021-1111 December 8, 2021 Complaint: The complainant alleges: On I was in and I’m gay, and I was having a good time with my friend. We were drinking and doing normal things for a night out, and I asked the lady for a hookah because when you reserve a table, you get a hookah. The lady didn’t answer; she just said, let’s go outside. She gave a signal to the police to take us out, and I didn’t know why because I wasn’t disrespecting anyone. There were cameras there; you can see that. I was just requesting what I had a right to because you pay for the service. The manager told us if we wanted to go back inside, we’d have to pay another $25. I asked why and started recording because they were bringing out another gentleman and another woman, and I just don’t feel like our rights were being respected. The security guards threw me on the ground and put guns on me and the electroshock device. I started crying and shouting, and there were witnesses who saw what they were doing to me. I wasn’t able to defend myself and, of course, because of my sexual orientation and they’re security officers. I called APD about five times from my phone, and they didn’t show up, and if they had shown up beforehand, they [security guards] would not have been able to use the electroshock on me, and I wouldn’t have suffered that trauma – trauma that I’m going to have to deal with for the rest of my life. An hour and a half later, the police arrived, a man and a woman, and they ended up speaking to them in English. That’s something that I didn’t understand and what I ended up telling the girl at the end is, “God can see everything you are doing.” The officers just spoke to the security guards and the club owner, and they just told me to leave and not to go back and leave the vehicle because I had been drinking. And that was fine; I could go back the next morning to get my vehicle. And there was a gentleman there who got the security guards off me and told me to leave because the guards were mafia and were going to kill me. Because of everything I had been through, I just wanted the police to arrive and defend us, but it didn’t turn out that way. The police are supposed to defend us. They’re not supposed to defend the people that are harming the community – the Latino community, the Hispanic community, much less the gay community. They didn’t help me, they just told me to leave and not come back, and I just don’t understand how it happened that way. I took pictures the next day of my face from when they threw me on the ground. It was all swollen. All I want is for the police to be able act for us, and not just for the gay community but everyone who is in the right. All of my sadness, frustration, and the trauma I endured were recorded on those four phone calls I made to 911 when they were hitting me, and I was crying. And it wasn’t because of the alcohol because I’m not drinking right now, and I’ve been traumatized for the rest of my life.
