Settlement amount


The plaintiff was walking when a police vehicle pulled over in front of the plaintiff. The officer asked for the plaintiff's ID and after giving it to the officer, the plaintiff panicked and began to run. Another police vehicle stopped in front of the plaintiff and the defendant officers handcuffed him, knocked him to the ground, assaulted him, sprayed him with mace, and slammed the plaintiff's face onto the concrete. The defendant officers then stomped on the plaintiff and continued to despite the plaintiff's cries that he could not breathe. The plaintiff lost consciousness and came to at a nearby hospital. The plaintiff was then brought to a Precinct for unspecified charges that were eventually dismissed.
