    Mentally challenged teen and his family sue Modesto police over drive-by shooting arrest

    A mentally challenged Modesto teenager and his family are suing the city in federal court, claiming police officers violated the teen’s rights by wrongfully arresting and interrogating him and coercing a confession from him in a 2012 drive-by shooting he did not commit. Modesto attorney Alonzo Gradford filed the lawsuit April 18 in the U.S. District Court’s Eastern District of California. Gradford represents Anthony Nunez, 19, and his mother, stepfather and brother. Gradford did not return several phone calls and the Nunez family could not be reached for comment.
