YOUNGSTOWN

A prisoner with a long criminal record, who was shot in the abdomen by a city police officer he allegedly tried to run down with his car in December 2012, has sued the city for $6.7 million, saying he was “attacked without provocation” by the officer.

The civil lawsuit was filed Tuesday in Mahoning County Common Pleas Court by Jesse Cooper, 40, of West Ravenwood Avenue, who is serving five years in the Belmont Correctional Institution.

The suit is assigned to Judge John M. Durkin, who imposed the prison term on Cooper in March after Cooper pleaded guilty to one count each of felonious assault and failure to comply with a police order, and two counts of receiving stolen property that stemmed from separate earlier incidents.
