Student files claim for sergeant’s behavior in Main Gate incident

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - The University of Arizona student who was knocked over by a Tucson Police sergeant during the Main Gate Square skirmish in late March has filed a notice of claim.

Christina Gardilcic was knocked down by Sergeant Joel Mann after the U of A basketball team lost the Elite 8 round of the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament.

Her attorney has filed a notice of claim against the sergeant, the police chief, and the City of Tucson. The claim says that Mann did not follow TPD's general orders and that he gave Gardilcic no warning to stop walking in that direction before he knocked her over.

The claim gives 60 days for those named to settle the dispute before a lawsuit is filed.

City attorney Mike Rankin said that he cannot comment on the narrative of the claim and that it's too early to tell how the city will respond because this is the time for them to review it.
