Wichita settles with man who claimed police officer beat him

KSAL StaffJuly 29, 2015

The city of Wichita has settled a lawsuit accusing an 18-year veteran of the police department of beating a man over what began as an alleged parking violation.

The Wichita Eagle reports the City Council last week approved paying Marcus McIntosh $325,000 to settle the suit against officer Brian Safris, former Police Chief Norman Williams and the city.

The suit alleged that Safris saw McIntosh park in a handicapped parking space in August 2013 and go inside a bar. It claims Safris told McIntosh to go outside with him, and after the two cursed at each other, the officer used a stun gun on McIntosh before repeatedly stomping and kicking him.

Safris is contesting his recent firing over the incident.
