CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - The man Charleston police mistakenly identified as the "Limping Bandit" has turned the tables on the city.
Richard Jolly filed a suit Friday, naming the City of Charleston as a defendant for wrongfully imprisoning him for six months before the charges were dropped.
Jolly was first identified as a suspect because of his height and build. He also wals with a limp.
The "Limping Bandit" has been accused of 23 different bank robberies across four states.
