Columbus pays $225k to settle any claims over 2017 police arrestt

The city of Columbus will pay a $225,000 settlement to avoid a potential second federal court trial on claims of excessive use of force against a wanted man by city police officers, who beat him repeatedly and used a stun gun on him 11 times during an arrest at a Driving Park convenience store in 2017 that was captured on cellphone video.

The City Council approved the settlement 7-0 at its meeting Monday — despite an internal affairs investigation that found the officers were justified and a federal jury that determined in 2021 the officers did not violate his civil rights — because a federal judge last year determined the jury made a mistake in finding the city totally not responsible and ruled that the man could refile for a new trial.
