PITTSBURGH (KDKA) -Was a 76-year-old man beaten by police during a traffic stop?

Ruffing was stopped by police on Waddell Avenue because a man in his car was wanted by police.

“His injuries were facial fractures which included the orbital bone, the maxillary sinus. He also ended up with inner-cranial bleeding. He was rushed to the hospital for emergency surgery, I believe on Jan. 9, where they had to put a drain actually in his skull to drain the blood and take the pressure off his brain,” Behling said.
