The Pittsburgh City Council is considering a bill that would pay $75,000 to a former performing arts student who says in a civil rights lawsuit against the city that he was wrongly beaten by three undercover officers.
An attorney for Jordan Miles didn’t immediately return a call on the bill, which was reported Tuesday by the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.
The then-18-year-old violinist was arrested and beaten on Jan. 12, 2010. A judge threw out resisting arrest charges against Miles, who says he believed the plainclothes officers didn’t identify themselves and meant him harm.
