On May 1, 2014, the City of Plainfield (Union County) agreed to pay $25,000 to a local woman who sued members of the Plainfield Police Department for allegedly assaulting her and using excessive force against her.

In her suit, Shelby Vattelle said that on December 19, 2010, during a motor vehicle stop, Plainfield Police Officer Michael J. Auriccio, "threw [her] to the concrete, smashed [her] face into the pavement" without justification.  She also claimed that Auriccio applied handcuffs too tightly and threw her to the ground again at Plainfield Police Headquarters.  There, she said, another officer "ripped [her] boots from her feet, breaking one of the heels."
