Walsh’s lawyer reports that prison officials forced him to place the bag that was covered with his fecal matter in his mouth and didn’t allow him to use a toothbrush until the following day. The lawsuit filed in Providence Supreme Court also alleges that Walsh was struck with a phonebook by a guard while being questioned about the incident.
