St. Paul pays $20,000 in lawsuit settlement

| No Comments

The St. Paul City Council settled a federal lawsuit for excessive force by police for $20,000 with a vote last week.
The suit came from an incident in 2007 with three minors who were throwing snowballs, according to a report by the Star Tribune.
The Pioneer Press reported that on March 12, 2007, Patrick Hedican IV, then 17, and two other minors ran after seeing a police car while throwing snowballs.
Hedican stopped running, and police kicked him and hit him with a flashlight, according to the Star Tribune.
The Pioneer Press reported that Hedican needed medical attention for several of his injuries.
The city said that the settlement is not an "admission of liability," according to the Star Tribune.
