Santa Rosa County FL has settled a lawsuit for $55,000 and has expunged the record for a retired Air Force colonel who was wrongfully arrested by deputies in the wake of hurricane Ivan. Apparently he and a neighbor came out with guns when they saw the deputies walking around the neighbor’s home thinking they were looters. The deputies then attacked the neighbor, beating & tasering him then tackling his wife before arresting the victim on attempted murder charges because he fired his shotgun into the ground before he knew the officers were deputies, one of which was later convicted for excessive force.
