Montgomery police settle brutality suit
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — The city of Montgomery has settled a lawsuit filed by two residents claiming police brutality.
The amount of the settlement is confidential.
Kamessa Williams and Miguel Johnson alleged they were roughed-up by police in separate incidents in 2009.
The lawsuit states that both Williams and Johnson are disabled.
Williams claimed an officer kicked her in the buttocks, stomped on her back and made her lie in a bed of ants.
Johnson claimed officers tackled him and handcuffed him roughly. He also says an officer stole $700 from his wallet.
A city inquiry found no wrongdoing.
The Montgomery Advertiser (http://on.mgmadv.com/15MZs3v) reports that Mayor Todd Strange and plaintiffs' attorney Julian McPhillips say they are "satisfied" with the settlement.
