Marlene Pinnock, who was punched repeatedly by a California Highway Patrol officer near a freeway in an incident caught on video, will get $1.5 million, and officer Daniel Andrew will resign, reports the Associated Press. .
Andrew could still be charged criminally in the case. The patrol forwarded the results of its investigation of the incident to Los Angeles County prosecutors last month. Pinnock’s attorney Caree Harper said, “One of the things we wanted to make sure of was that she was provided for in a manner that accommodated her unique situation in life, and that the officer was not going to be an officer anymore and we secured those things.” The July 1 video of Andrew punching Pinnock was captured by a passing driver and spread widely on the internet and television.
