Two Irvington boys and their football coach filed suit against the Newark police department recently. After practice one day, the boys' football coach was driving them to a fast food restaurant in Irvington. While on their way to the restaurant, the minivan that the coach was driving stopped behind two cars at a red light. When the light turned green and the cars in front did not move, the coach signaled he was going around and proceeded to try to pass the two cars. The front car swerved out into the Irvington intersection and blocked the path of the mini van while six police officers with guns drawn surrounded the van. The Irvington boy's lawsuit claims that the police frisked them forcefully and shouted obscenities and denied them rights during the incident. Ultimately, the coach was issued two tickets – one for failing to wear a seatbelt, and the other for failing to switch his driver's license to New Jersey.
