LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A former Lubbock police officer is suing the city.

Kimberly Nacoe Diaz was arrested in May of 2007 on accusations of child abuse. In part, she was accused of throwing hot soup at her daughter. Special Prosecutor Tommy Turner dropped charges in December, saying one of his concerns was having enough evidence to get a conviction. Turner also tells NewsChannel 11 that there was testimony that prosecuting the case all the way to a trial might have been harmful to Diaz's daughter.

Meanwhile, Diaz has filed a lawsuit against the city. She had been reinstated to the police department, but then was fired. Her lawsuit claims that she was fired - or placed on indefinite suspension - for reporting that her estranged husband was stalking her. The man in question is also a Lubbock police officer.
