Sheumaker files counterclaim in assault lawsuit by Des Moines officers


Des Moines Register: A City Council member sued by two Des Moines police officers is in turn suing them, alleging that they used force unconstitutionally in arresting her and others during a protest. Indira Sheumaker, who was elected in 2021 to represent Ward 1 on the Des Moines City Council, was charged with felony assault on a police officer after the July 1, 2020, protest outside the state Capitol. She later pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor for pushing and injuring an officer, though she now denies in her Aug. 10 counterclaim that the action was intentional.
