A 68-year-old African American woman has filed a lawsuit against four Des Peres police officers that allegedly beat her and her son over a false claim that the pair had stolen a television from Sam’s Club. Marvia Gray and her son Derek Gray said they bought a television from the Sam’s Club on Manchester Road on March 23. They could not fit the 65 inch TV into their SUV and said they made arrangements with store employees to come back for it.
