  1. I own river cafe on river street I Santa Cruz. on friday oct 31 2014 I was assulted and then arrested for no reason at my business during a night event. i was assulted by two officers, one being Bernadette erlach and another male officer.
    they have also concealed evidence as the ticket that I signed is missing. in addition they lied to the lietenant regarding what actually happened.
    many of my customers and personal friends witnessed this assult and took pictures and videos.
