HOUSTON - A protester has sued several police officers, accusing them of violating his free-speech rights after he was arrested last year for carrying a sign critical of President Bush.

Chris Kelly, 43, was holding the cardboard sign near a crowd of Houston Astros baseball fans Oct. 18 when police approached him. Police handcuffed him, put him into a police car and drove through downtown before releasing him without explanation, according to the lawsuit filed Wednesday.

A municipal judge later dismissed the misdemeanor citation.
