Pasadena apartment security accused of attacking potential resident
A Pasadena apartment complex and its allegedly overzealous security guards are being sued over claims they brutally attacked a potential resident.
Michael S. Williams filed a lawsuit on July 20 in the Harris County District Court against PSPA Investments, doing business in Pasadena as Parkside Place Apartments, STSPC, doing business as State Tactical Security and Protection, and others, citing assault, intentional infliction of emotional distress, negligence and gross negligence.
Williams says on April 4, the defendants, without provocation, violently attacked him, threw him against his car, tackled him to the ground and then beat him, while accusing him of kicking in the doors of various apartments in the complex, located at 3101 Spencer Highway in Pasadena.
The suit alleges the attack occurred after Williams toured the apartments with an agent and dined with a friend who already lived on the premises.
An ambulance arrived and transported Williams to a local hospital for his injuries, according to the brief.
Williams is being represented in the case by Deer Park resident Shane Pellerin. He is seeking damages and court costs.
