Violent Traffic Stop

A Fort Worth deaf man was injured in a tussle with police a year ago. Now the city is paying him $50,000 to drop his lawsuit against it. Christopher Ferrell was stopped for speeding but wound up with a broken nose. Officer JA Miller says he though Ferrell was going for a gun, so he slammed his head into the rear windshield. Miller was suspended for two days without pay but he has appealed that decision. You can see the video of the arrest here.
