He added that he had to spend four days in the hospital.Boyd’s lawsuit claims he is suffering from a serious heart condition as a result of the arrest. The lawsuit lists nine injuries ranging from a fractured nose to black eyes. Boyd is asking for $750,000 for pain, suffering, and loss of income following his arrest.
