A Nevada city will pay a diabetic man $158,500 after police beat him while he was in diabetic shock, thinking he was a drunken driver.
The Henderson, Nev., city council approved the settlement on Tuesday for the physical and emotional distress endured in late 2010 by the man, who asked not to be identified.
“It’s alarming and it’s egregious,” the man’s attorney, Todd Moody, told ABC 13 Action News. “It will make you a little sick to your stomach watching it.”
The video showed that once the car was pulled over, police officers swarmed the driver and began kicking him.
“Stop resisting motherf****r. Stop resisting motherf****r,” an officer yelled as the man lay on the ground.
