|The city may end up paying out a hefty award in a case claiming false arrest.
A city court awarded the sum of $95-thousand Tyron Satchell, who had asked for upwards of $5 million claiming he was beaten by three officers while he was sitting on his front porch in 2009. He also said he was hauled to central booking and held for no good reason.
Satchell said he was thrown on the ground and assaulted by the officers who had ordered several men off his porch.
Satchell had been convicted and sentenced almost 10 years ago in a drug distrubution case, the Sun reported.
