Metro Settles Beating Case

(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.

    Well, I certainly hope Colling was on paid leave all that time. After all, we wouldn’t want these vicious fascists to go without their cheap hooch.

    :Emilie, you can add Sushi Fever on W. Sahara to the sushi list. The new Lolita’s at Towne Square completes your Mexican line up. Hash House A-Go-Go is a must for the umtalite breakfast in town. They are at Imperial Palace, M Resort and on W. Sahara. Also, Firefly now has a location downtown at the Plaza Hotel overlooking the Fremont Street experience.[]Emilie Barta Reply:November 13th, 2010 at 5:23 pmThanks for adding to the list, Mike…your recommendations are especially appreciated since you are a “local!” []
