    <p>LAS VEGAS (AP) – The family of a man who was punched, hit with stun gun jolts and put in a neck restraint by a police officer outside a Las Vegas casino in 2017 has reached a tentative $2.2 million settlement with police.</p> <p>Boris Treyzon, an attorney for 007카지노 the family of Tashii Brown, said the agreement settles a lawsuit filed on behalf of Brown´s children that accused Las Vegas police of excessive force and 퍼스트카지노 gross negligence in the 40-year-old’s death.</p> <p>The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said in a statement that “an amicable resolution” was reached but the settlement will go before the department’s Fiscal Affairs Committee for approval.</p> <p>The department confirmed to the Las Vegas Review-Journal that the proposed settlement would be the largest in the department’s history.</p> <p>The department said it could not comment further until the committee takes action.</p> <p>Kenneth Lopera, 바카라사이트 the officer who used the unapproved chokehold on Brown, was fired after the department said he violated use-of-force policies.

    Lopera then became the first Las Vegas police officer to face a manslaughter charge since 1990 in a city where police shootings and uses of force drew reform recommendations in 2012 from the U.S. Justice Department.</p> <p>The charge against Lopera came after the Clark County coroner ruled that Brown was asphyxiated as a result of the police neck restraint.
    Medical examiners also noted that Brown had an enlarged heart and methamphetamine in his system when he died.</p> <p>In 2018, all criminal charges against Lopera, also including oppression under color of office, were dropped after legal representatives from his police union presented evidence to a criminal grand jury that Brown´s death was due to his heart ailment and drug use.

    The grand jury refused to indict.</p> <p>The settlement in the case with Brown’s children releases the police department and Lopera from the lawsuit. A message left Friday with Lopera’s attorney was not returned.</p> <p>A separate lawsuit filed by Brown’s mother, Trinita Farmer, is pending in federal court.</p></div>
