$550,000 Settlement in California False Arrest

The County of Los Angeles has paid $550,000 to settle the false arrest claim of Darryl Titus. He was arrested on February 9, 2005, on a felony charge of vandalism.

The charge stemmed from a January 29, 2004, report by the owner of a car whose tires were punctured with a screwdriver. The car’s owner identified Titus as the perpetrator.

Titus spent 106 days in jail before a court found him to be factually innocent. Titus then filed suit. The matter was settled in May 2009. Titus was represented by attorney Rami Kayyali. See: Titus v. County of Los Angeles, USDC, C.D. Cal., Case No. 2:06-cv-03690-ODW-AJW.
