The city of Beloit, WI, has just settled a lawsuit out of court brought by a 16-year-old boy. He was in a parked car with two other boys when police received a call reporting “drug activity”. When the officer noticed a bulge in the teen’s pants during a routine pat down, the teen said it was his genitals.
The cop didn’t believe the teen, so the teen dropped his pants. That’s when the cop pushed the teen so roughly against the back of the car that the back windshield broke and the teen suffered a concussion.
The cop then found a small baggie containing a personal use amount of marijuana in the teen’s underwear.
The city just paid out $265,000 in the settlement. That’s one expensive baggie of weed!
