League City man with cancer accuses four Galveston police officers of brutal assault
Galveston, TX

Isaac Walton rose out of bed on Aug. 15 at the Ocean Inn Motel on Seawall Boulevard feeling relaxed. It had been more than eight months since he received a harrowing diagnosis of acute myeloid leukemia but Walton’s relentless positivity kept his spirits high. It was the day before his middle daughter’s sixth birthday — an occasion more than worthy of a family trip to Galveston — and he was determined to start the day off right.

Yet, the peaceful summer morning ended with the 32-year-old bloodied and bruised, dropped off at the emergency room by the same Galveston police officers he says assaulted him without cause.
