(Las Vegas, NV) – The Las Vegas police department has approved a $100,000 settlement for Mitchell Crooks, who was beaten by a former Las Vegas Metropolitan Police officer.

Police officer Derek Colling was caught on tape using excessive force against Crooks, who filed the lawsuit in 2011.

Colling was fired from his position in December of last year after an eight-month investigation. Colling had also been in two officer-involved shootings prior to the Crooks incident.
