LOS ANGELES (UPI)--Jimmie Rodgers, the folksinger who suffered critical head injuries after his car was slopped by a police officer, has filed an '$11 million personal damage claim against the city of Los Angeles. Rodgers. 33. was found unconscious in his parked car last Dec. 1. An investigation later determined he had been stopped by an ofiduty policeman for allegedly driving erratically. The police department said Rodgers apparently slipped and fell when he got out of his car after pulling off the San Diego Freeway at the request ot police officer Michael Duffy. In the claim filed Wednesday, however, Rodgers said he was "thrown or caused to fall to the pavement by a police officer or officers." The claim said Rodgers was picked up unconscious and put back in his car by police "without rendering assistance and without reporting the incident." Duffy had .summoned two uniformed officers after stopping Rodgers, conferred wilb them, then all three left without taking further action. Police chief Tom Redclin later suspended the trio for 15 days because of "improper procedure." He said the officers should have booked Rodgers on some charge or noted in their log he had been stopped.
