S Carolina man who says officer hurt him in jail given $90K

GREENVILLE, S.C. — A South Carolina man who said he suffered major neck and spinal injuries after a police officer pushed him to a jail floor while he was still in handcuffs was given a $90,000 settlement. The Greenville News reports the city of Greenville settled a March 2018 lawsuit filed by Bobby Falls against the police department and county detention center last month. Falls was booked into the detention center in August 2016 for public intoxication. Officials say they do not believe the officer did anything wrong. A spokeswoman for the city says the decision to settle the lawsuit was made to avoid additional costs and a trial. The charges against Falls were dismissed in 2018.
