A Colwyn Borough councilman has filed a federal lawsuit alleging that he was assaulted by police at a council meeting last year.
Council President Tonette Pray disputed that any assault occurred at the June 9, 2011, meeting.
"None of that happened," Pray said. "Basically, this is all political."
Councilman Sunday Nwegbo was arrested for disorderly conduct at the meeting. In October, he was found not guilty in District Court.
At that meeting, according to the lawsuit filed Tuesday, Nwegbo was criticizing McDonald Ford, then the borough's treasurer, when Ford "attempted to physically attack" Nwegbo.
