LAPD-police-A Los Angeles police sergeant sued the city Thursday, alleging he was denied a restoration of rank because he is white.

Sgt. Jake Bushey filed the discrimination suit in Los Angeles Superior Court, seeking unspecified damages.

A spokesman for the City Attorney’s Office did not immediately return a call for comment.

The suit states that Bushey’s ex-wife filed a report against him in 2010, but does not divulge its contents. As a result of what the woman reported, Bushey was downgraded from a sergeant 2 to a sergeant 1 and suspended for 22 days, according to his court papers.

Since serving the suspension, Bushey says he has not been involved in any misconduct and has been performing the duties of a sergeant 2 without the corresponding pay.

“His performance has been exemplary,” the suit says.
