NAPLES, Fla. — A 48-year-old North Naples man TASERed while handcuffed in a jail cell after an unlawful arrest in 2005 settled his federal lawsuit against Collier County Sheriff Kevin Rambosk and four deputies for $95,000.

The settlement came a day after the agency's attorney agreed to a $50,000 settlement in another TASER case involving a teen who died, which deputies blamed on a drug overdose.
