Nathaniel Caylor, 35, had filed a federal lawsuit against the Seattle Police Department arguing that officers Eugene Schubeck and Don Leslie used excessive force and violated his Fourth Amendment guarantee against illegal seizure during a 2009 incident in which he was badly wounded. The officers had gone to a Seattle home to check on Caylor after a family member called 911 saying he was suicidal and had his 20-month-old son in his care, court records show.
