Baltimore to Expected to Pay $60K Settlement to Woman

Posted: Updated:

BALTIMORE (AP)- Baltimore's spending panel is expected to approve $135,000 to settle two police misconduct lawsuits, including one involving a woman who says police deleted a video she recorded during her arrest.
    
The board will vote Wednesday whether to approve a $60,000 settlement with Kianga Mwamba, who says she was doing nothing wrong in March 2014 when police used a stun gun on her, slammed her to the ground and called her a derogatory name.
    
Mwamba says officers deleted her cellphone footage of the incident, but she recovered a backup version.
    
The board will also vote whether to pay Leonard Key $75,000 in a case accusing officers of using excessive force during an unspecified arrest.
    
The city has paid about $13 million since 2011 in settlements involving accusations of police misconduct.
