LOS ANGELES (AP) — A disabled man who was handcuffed tightly enough to cause nerve damage has won $1.6 million in an excessive force lawsuit filed against Los Angeles police.
A day after the verdict, the jury returned to court on Thursday and decided Officer Alex Tellez should pay an additional $90,000 himself. City officials, however, can choose to indemnify Tellez.
