City awards $350,000 settlement to woman who was beaten by police officers during a Chargers game

City council to give woman $350,000 for injuries she suffered at the hands of police officers during a Chargers game.

On Monday, September 9, city councilmembers will write a $350,000 check to a woman who was beaten by police officers during a Chargers game in 2012. The woman filed a lawsuit back on May 2 of this year after she was falsely arrested and allegedly beaten by San Diego police officers. According to the complaint (scroll down), the 30-year-old suffered a concussion, broken jaw, and lost two teeth from the alleged battery.

Reads the settlement agreement to be heard during the upcoming council meeting:

"BE IT RESOLVED, by the Council of the City of San Diego that the Council authorizes: The sum of three hundred fifty thousand dollars ($350,000.) to be paid from the Public Liability Fund No. 7714 in settlement of each and every claim for damages, interest, costs and fees of any type, including attorney fees, against the City, its agents and employees, arising from the Litigation."

Here's my May 3 story on the lawsuit:

As if it wasn't painful enough seeing a Chargers game last year, throw in a broken jaw, a concussion, and two teeth getting knocked out, and it gets even more worse.

On May 2, a 30-year old woman filed a lawsuit in U.S. Federal Court against the City of San Diego and police officer Jadarric Davis for battery, civil rights violations, and negligence.

The woman alleges that during her first pro-football game in September of last year, she was, according to the complaint, ejected from the game "for reasons that are not completely clear."

San Diego Police Officer Davis and his partner detained and arrested her and began escorting her outside in handcuffs. It was then, according to the lawsuit, that out of the blue, Officer Davis shot her in the chest with his taser. Once outside, the woman claimed that Officer Davis picked her up and slammed her down against a cement barrier.

"Cuffed behind her back, [the woman] was completely controlled and helpless," reads the May 2 complaint. "Nevertheless, Officer Davis lifted [her] and violently slammed her onto the ground, face first, with tremendous force. [Her] face and chin slammed into the cement. Because she was handcuffed she had no way to break her fall."

The woman alleges that she was knocked unconscious and eventually admitted to the trauma unit in Sharp Memorial Hospital. There doctors and nurses treated her for three days for a broken jaw, and a concussion.

"The force and violence used by Officer Davis was wholly unnecessary, unjustified, and grossly excessive," continues the complaint. "Handcuffed behind her back and only five-feet-three-inches tall, [she] posed no threat to two much bigger, heavily armed police officers."

The complaint later goes on to add that no charges were ever filed against the woman. And, just weeks after the incident, Officer Davis was involved in a domestic dispute and "booked into the San Diego County jail and was put on administrative leave by the police department."

She is suing the City for $75,000 in medical bills, in addition to compensation for lost wages, future medical expenses and emotional distress..

According to the complaint, a claim was filed against the city in March 2013. That claim was later denied.
