Man’s Hand Got Dismembered After Cops Hold Him Too Tight In Handcuffs for Hours

After his release, the doctors got concerned once they saw his grey fingertips.

Man in Alabama is trying to sue the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office after they violated his civil rights by handcuffing him too tightly for many hours. This resulted in severe injuries, which eventually caused his hand to get amputated.

26-year-old Giovanni Loyala was at his mother’s trailer on the 16th of February 2020. There were reports of a fight breaking out between two men having guns. The three sheriff’s deputies came in response to these reports.

As per the lawsuit, Loyola was immediately grabbed by his wrist and detained by the deputy when he answered the door.

Then, the deputy proceeded to pull him down the stairs and slam him against the car. After falling to the ground, the deputy continued to punch him in the face. The deputy then handcuffed Loyola so hard that he described it as “unbearably right.”

According to Loyola, this incident was the reason why his hand got amputated ten months later.

The deputy’s report tells us that Loyola was apparently intoxicated and was resisting the arrest. On the other hand, Loyola says that he was only watching the television.

When he was arrested, Loyola told the deputies that his left hand was feeling numb. Unfortunately, the deputies ignored him.

According to the deputy’s report, Loyola was allegedly intoxicated and fighting with family members before he fought the deputies and resisted arrest. Loyola, however, claims that he was merely watching television.

“The handcuffs remained tightly on Plaintiff’s wrists until they were removed hours later at the jail,” the amended complaint reads. “After Plaintiff got out of jail on February 28, 2020, his left wrist was still in tremendous pain.”

After his release, doctors noticed that Loyola had a severe blood flow issue and that it required surgery. His fingers were grey, and the doctors were concerned for necrosis.

After visiting the hospital many times and having four surgeries in the span of 10 months, his left hand was eventually amputated.

An Alabama man is suing the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office for excessive force, and civil rights violations after a sheriff’s deputy handcuffed him too tightly for several hours, resulting in major injuries that ultimately led to the amputation of his left hand.

According to the lawsuit, a “Deputy Godber” grabbed Loyola by the wrist and roughly detained him mere moments after Loyola answered the door.

At that point, the deputy then pulled Loyola down the stairs and “slammed” him against the car before throwing him to the ground and punching him in the face. The deputy proceeded to handcuff Loyola in a manner that was “unbearably tight.”

Loyola claims that complications from the incident led to the amputation of his hand ten months later.

According to the deputy’s report, Loyola was allegedly intoxicated and fighting with family members before he fought the deputies and resisted arrest. Loyola, however, claims that he was merely watching television.

During the arrest, Loyola complained that he was feeling numb in his left hand, but deputy Godber ignored his pleas.

“The handcuffs remained tightly on Plaintiff’s wrists until they were removed hours later at the jail,” the amended complaint reads. “After Plaintiff got out of jail on February 28, 2020, his left wrist was still in tremendous pain.”

Following his release from jail, Loyola checked into a local hospital and was told that he had a severe blood flow issue requiring surgery. Upon admission at Ascension St. Vincent’s East Hospital in Birmingham, his fingertips were grey, and doctors had a “concern for necrosis.”

Following multiple hospital visits and four surgeries over the course of 10 months, he eventually had the left hand amputated.

“Deputy Godber handcuffed Plaintiff’s wrists so tightly that Plaintiff immediately lost sensation in one hand, and Deputy Godber refused to loosen the handcuffs even after Plaintiff told him that they were too tight and were causing him pain,” Loyola’s attorneys argued. “These actions and inactions constituted unreasonable and excessive force.”

The deputies are also accused of unlawfully searching through Loyola’s home without a warrant. Loyola is trying to sue them for compensatory damages done to his physical and mental health, loss of income, legal fees, punitive damages, and medical costs.
