Waysie Jensen, an officer with the Beaumont Police Department, is suing Royale and Brandy Plair, alleging Royale Plair struck his vehicle twice while fleeing a domestic disturbance scene.

The suit was filed Dec. 30 in Jefferson County District Court.

According to the lawsuit, on Feb. 3, 2010, Officer Jensen was responding to a domestic disturbance call when Royale Plair, driving a vehicle owned and insured by Brandy Plair, struck his vehicle twice while attempting to flee from the scene.

In his suit, Officer Jensen alleges he injured his back and right arm because of Royale Plair's negligence, claiming the defendant was an incompetent and unfit driver who acted with indifference to the welfare of the plaintiff.

On top of exemplary damages, Officer Jensen is suing for his alleged past and future medical expenses, mental anguish, pain, impairment, disfigurement and lost wages, plus all court costs.

Beaumont attorney Jonathan Juhan represents him.

Judge Donald Floyd, 172nd District Court, is assigned to the case.

Case No. E191-590
