Antonio Love (Mobile, Alabama) is a 37-year-old deaf man with psychiatric disabilities.  One day Antonio got sick and went into a Dollar General store to go to the bathroom. He was in there for about an hour.  A worker called the police to get Antonio out of the bathroom.  The police demanded that Antonio leave the bathroom, but he could not hear the orders.  The police pepper sprayed him and forced open the door with a crowbar.  The police then held him for 5 hours for failing to follow a police order.  He was eventually released.  He is suing the police officers involved.
