Settlement Reached In Police Suit

A settlement is being reached between five Springfield police detectives and a state trooper and a plaintiff  who alleged use of excessive force.  

The Springfield Republican reports details of the  agreement involving Justin Douglas aren't being made available  currently, but a settlement notice was posted in U.S. District Court  Monday morning as jury selection was set to begin in a trial being  brought on by the convicted weapons dealer.  

Douglas was arrested at a  motel in West Springfield in 2012 and alleges he was beaten and  pistol-whipped. 

Embattled narcotics detective Gregg Bigda was one of  the six officers named in the suit.
