Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

If your husband suffered injuries during his arrest and he was not resisting the arrest, then you need to get him an attorney immediately, as they would be the only one who could get access to your husband and get pictures taken of his injuries. So, at this point you need to hire an attorney to represent him and would have to prove that your husband was not resisting the officers who were arresting him and in that case any force used would be excessive and as such he would have a good chance of winning his case.

If they prove he did resist arrest, then they had a right to use whatever force was necessary to overcome his resistance.
