Blessed Beating: Woman Given $1.5 Million After Getting Punched By Police

share on:

A woman who was beaten by a Los Angeles policeman in an incident caught on video will receive $1.5 million in a settlement.

California Highway Patrol (CHP) said that, as part of the agreement with victim Marlene Pinnock, the officer has agreed to resign.

The settlement came after a nine-hour mediation session in Los Angeles.

“When this incident occurred, I promised that I would look into it and vowed a swift resolution,” CHP Commissioner Joe Farrow said in a statement.

“Today, we have worked constructively to reach a settlement agreement that is satisfactory to all parties involved.”

The July 1 video, shot by a passing driver, was widely circulated on social media and shocked Americans, prompting some to demand a federal inquiry.

It shows officer Daniel Andrew pinning Ms Pinnock beneath him on the grassy strip. He then unleashes a flurry of punches to her face as she lies flat on her back.
