Florida Citizen Awarded $10,000 in Police Brutality Suit

A Florida woman identified only as Rowland was stopped in a motel parking lot by police in Daytona Beach Shores, Florida. As she was answering one cop's questions, another one sneaked up behind her and kicked her feet from under her, causing her to bump her head when she fell. She sued in state court where in 2006 a jury awarded her $10,000 for being battered by police. See: Rowland v. City of Daytona Beach Shores, Volusia County Superior Court, Case No. 2004-30480.
