Miami Township, Ohio, has agreed to pay $100,000 to settle a lawsuit brought by the family of a 17-year-old girl who was forced to strip naked then hosed down by former deputy police chief John DiPietro. He did this ostensibly to decontaminate her after she was pepper-sprayed. DiPietro also photographed a tattoo on the girl's back and sent it to a friend, but he insisted she was not naked when he did that.
