A settlement has been reached and approved in a federal case involving the city of Owasso and Bryan Spradlin.
In August 2012, attorneys for Spradlin, 27 filed a federal civil complaint against several defendants, including the city of Owasso.
During an Owasso City Council meeting Tuesday, June 16, the council unanimously approved settling the case for $75,000.
The council did not have comments before the vote.
The complaint, filed in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Oklahoma, named the city, the Owasso Police Department, Police Chief Dan Yancey, Human Resources Director Michele Dempster, police officer Benjamin Wolery, police officer Jonathan Foyil, police officer Mike Denton, police officer H.D. Pitt, and others listed as John Doe, as defendants.
The lawsuit was related to an incident that took place in Owasso June 30, 2011.
