WACO, TX (KXXV) -

A federal civil lawsuit has been filed stemming from the Twin Peaks incident, according to complaint filed Wednesday. 

Morgan English, from Brenham, was present at the restaurant when the incident happened on May 17, 2015. 

The $350,000,000 federal civil lawsuit was filed in federal court. 

The lawsuit was filed against the City of Waco, McLennan County, McLennan County District Attorney Abel Reyna, former Waco Police Chief Brent Stroman, and Waco Police Officer Manuel Chavez.

English was in the car with her husband and two friends when shot rang out and they took cover, according to the complaint. 

"Morgan English has now been portrayed all over the world as involved in a mass homicide. Her lawsuit is very different from others that have filed," said Houston civil rights attorney Randall Kallinen, who is representing English. 

Waco Police Department told News Channel 25 that they could not comment on the pending litigation. 

"The issue she's complaining about has already been addressed by a district judge who found probable cause existed for Mrs. English's arrest," Reyna told News Channel 25. "Unfortunately, our system allows for frivolous lawsuits that allow individuals to make ridiculous allegations." 

Morgan was held in custody in 16 days and was given a $1,000,000 bond. English was released after a grand jury didn't indict her.
