” A former U.S. Air Force sergeant is suing the federal government and four federal officers for allegedly tasing him several times and striking him in the head and back as he tried to go through security at a downtown Portland office for an appointment.

  William Bayes, 47, was wearing a brace on each knee and using a cane at the time of the alleged December 2012 assault by four Federal Protective Service officers, the federal lawsuit states. Bayes, who suffers from service-related post-traumatic stress disorder, had an appointment that day with the Disabled American Veterans office in the building at Southwest First Avenue and Southwest Main Street, according to the complaint.

  The problems started when Bayes arrived at the Disabled Veterans’ second-floor office, which is housed within the regional office of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. The following account comes from the lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Portland.
