Chad Seegars, 20, was in a Rikers Island visitor area in February 2012 when a stranger grabbed him and cut his face, leaving an eight-inch cut that required 90 stitches on his right cheek. According to a new lawsuit, a correction officer found a way to make things worse. Seegars is suing the officer for taking a photo of his injury without his consent and posting it on Facebook under the title "The Things Tht Happens On The Island Smhh."
