'Kill all police' graffiti suspect claims police abused him, shot his dog

- The man accused of writing threatening messages to Detroit police says he was treated poorly during his arrest.

Stuart Lewis was arrested Friday, accused of spray painting "Kill all police, kill James Craig," on the side of a building.

The warrant was submitted to the prosecutor's office Sunday morning.

The prosecutor's office adjourned it, asking for more evidence and setting the man free.

"That's letting you know that they didn't have nothing against me," Lewis said.

He actually spoke with FOX 2 on Friday night and he made his disdain for police and Craig well known, though he told FOX 2 he had nothing to do with the graffiti.

When we spoke with him Sunday, he made some serious accusations about how police treated him during the arrest.

"They flash bombed my house, which burned my arm right here," Lewis said, showing his bandaged elbow. "And they (dragged) me from my front door right here. I was sitting in my living room ... then they (dragged) me over the rocks over here down here ... They picked me up, stood me up, just snatched me up, walked me down the street almost to the corner. They walked me down the street, set me outside for 30 minutes, wouldn't put me in the car or anything."

Lewis says he volunteered a sample of his handwriting for police.

He also says police ransacked his home and shot his dog during the arrest.

"My dog was shot dead while running away into the bedroom," he said.

Detroit Police Chief James Craig says Lewis should be charged with terrorism, and that he will make an official statement on Monday.
