A Cook County man is suing a security guard and a security organization, alleging he was improperly removed from the stands during the game, tackled by a group of security guards, roughly locked in a holding cell and falsely charged with a crime during a 2013 Chicago Bears home game.

Steven Daoud filed a lawsuit Aug. 14, in Cook County Circuit Court against Soldier Field security officer Harold Brooks, individually and as an agent for Monterey Security Consultants, and other unknown defendants, alleging malicious behavior.

According to the complaint on Oct. 13, 2013, during a Bears game at Solider Field, Brooks, who the complaint alleges had a background of promoting gang-like behavior with his friends on Facebook, practiced malicious behavior when dealing with Daoud, who the complaint alleges was improperly subjected to spiteful behavior, for which there was no probable cause.

Daoud seeks judgment against Brooks, his employers and unknown subjects for damages of more than $50,000, plus costs of suit and any other relief the court seems appropriate. He is represented by attorneys Lance Northcutt of the Northcutt Firm in Chicago, and Glennon F. Curran of Alberts Curran & Eiler, also in Chicago.

Cook County Circuit Court case number 2015L008366.
