Deaf man paid $200k in police brutality suit

By Scott Daugherty
ANNAPOLIS, Md. — The county has paid a deaf man $200,000 to settle a police brutality lawsuit.
The payout figure — released to The Capital last week after a request under the state's Public Information Act — represents the largest such settlement by the county in at least four years. Most brutality and false arrest claims filed against the county Police Department in recent years have resulted in settlements of no more than $25,000.
