Man flips cop off, wins $50,000

David Hackbart flipped a cop off and ended up cited for, you guessed it, disorderly conduct.

He didnít even get arrested and the charge was eventually dropped.

But that didnít stop him from filing a lawsuit against the City of Pittsburgh for violating his First Amendment rights.

The Pittsburgh City Council did not want to take it to trial and agreed this week to dish out a $50,000 settlement.

So anybody who tells you that it is illegal to flip off a cop, I know somebody who will be willing to bet $50,000 that it isnít.
