Complaint Against State Rep. Brian Nieves Is Long on Details

Posted By on Fri, Aug 13, 2010 at 1:24 PM

If political consultant Shawn Bell is lying about the threats and beat down he says he received from State Rep. Brian Nieves last week, it's one whopper of a tale.

Below is Bell's complaint filed with the Washington police department -- all 12 pages of it.

The complaint would seem to do little to boost Bell's self-esteem with the alleged victim saying Nieves made fun of him because he's fat, curled up in a ball and screamed like a school girl as Nieves' allegedly interrogated and smacked him, and was considering suicide before and after the alleged run-in with Nieves.
