“Pierce County sheriff SWAT team invaded my home, shattered my bedroom window above my bed while I was asleep, detonated an explosive device, covered me with broken glass, frightened me,” Stivers wrote in her damages claim.

“Afterward, they did not secure my home, board up my window. They made no effort to repair the damage or even clean up the mess they made.”

The suit, filed by Tacoma attorney Geoffrey Cross, says Stivers’ daughter, who has multiple sclerosis, was frightened by the commotion.

The younger woman, who cannot move from her bed to her wheelchair without help, was isolated in her room for 30 minutes without knowing what was going on, according to the suit.

Sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer disputed the allegations Friday.”
