Surveillance show man getting beat by Fort Worth Police Officers

A man arrested on suspicion of DWI is seeking a settlement after Fort Worth police video shows him with his hands restrained behind his back when he is slammed to the floor.The Fort Worth City Council on Tuesday was expected to consider a settlement agreement with 40-year-old Carey Cass Hudson.The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports Hudson suffered a broken nose, a concussion and has brain damage from the 2008 incident at a holding facility. Driving while intoxicated charges were later dropped.Court documents indicate an officer accused of mishandling Hudson will be issued a written reprimand and ordered to seek anger-management counseling.Police Chief Jeffrey Halstead, who took office after the incident, says the officer’s actions are “disturbing” and he has held the officer as accountable as he can.His mom talked to the city today to not approve the $120,000 settlement. I truly agree with her this an insult, her son has a brain injury also had a broken nose in this horrific beating.
