A South Carolina man got into a fight with a local police officer in 2009. According to reports, the man was hit several times in the eye with the metal baton by the officer and received surgery for his injuries.
During the surgery, medical personnel removed the man’s eye.
The man filed a law suit against the police officer for medical expenses he incurred due to the fight. On November 11 of this year, a jury awarded $45,000 to the man. For more information on this story, visit Anderson Independent Mail.
