The city will pay out an $82,500 settlement to an Occupy Wall Street activist who claims police beat him up and arrested him three times - the last instance booking him on a years-old public urination warrant for someone else, the Daily News has learned.

Shawn Schrader, 24, said the beatdowns left him with a bleeding ear, a hurt thumb and nightmares about cops.

"I settled my lawsuit because the police lawyers made it clear they would fight me tooth and nail on every claim," Schrader told The News. All charges against Schrader stemming from the three arrests were dropped.
