Memphis physician, husband sue Southaven for $1 million each

A Memphis physician and her husband each are seeking $1 million from the city of Southaven and two of its police officers over a widely-publicized traffic stop last September that ended with the couple arrested on charges of disorderly conduct.

Dr. Marcia Bowden and her husband, Ira Marche, claim police violated their constitutional rights under several amendments when the officers stopped Marche's 2008 black Jaguar on Church Road Sept. 7, 2015, for allegedly speeding. According to the police incident report, Marche was going 63 mph in a 45 mph zone.

By the time the incident ended, according to a lawsuit filed late Thursday in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Mississippi, Marche was in a holding cell at Southaven Police Department and a handcuffed Bowden who brought the wife of then-Memphis Mayor A C Wharton into the story was at Baptist Memorial Hospital-DeSoto with what doctors determined was a stress-induced attack.

The lawsuit says the actions of the two named officers, Sgt. Brett Loganzino and Officer Jeremy Delaney, demonstrate they needed better training, and the city is liable for not recognizing that need and providing the training.
