California’s County of Sacramento paid $1,836 to settle the claim of Victor M. Ramirez, who was pulled over after making an illegal turn. The officer issued him a citation, said there was an outstanding warrant for “Victor Gonzalez,” and arrested Ramirez. As a result, Ramirez’s vehicle was impounded and he lost six days of work after his November 15, 2004 arrest, plus he incurred attorney and bail bond fees. He also had to pay the impound fee. The claim settled on June 17, 2005. See: In re Ramirez, County of Sacramento (CA), Office of Risk Management, Claim No: L0500370.
