Police Abuse

NH Man Beaten by Police Gets $200K

No charges against the cops, of course


MANCHESTER—Christopher Micklovich, the bar patron whose bloodied, beaten face shocked Manchester residents following his 2010 arrest, was quietly paid $200,000 to settle a federal lawsuit he filed against the city and four police officers accused of beating him, the New Hampshire Union Leader has learned.

City Risk Manager Harry Ntapalis, who oversees claims and settlements against the city, said the payment was approved and paid in mid-May of last year. Ntapalis provided the information when asked Monday by the Union Leader.
