A $2.1 million settlement has been reached in an excessive force lawsuit filed by a Black Navy veteran seen in body camera footage being punched and kicked by three Colorado Springs police officers during a traffic stop that started over a $15 license plate violation.

The settlement for Dalvin Gadson, 30, was approved by the Colorado Springs City Council in a 7-1 vote on Tuesday over the incident in October 2022, officials said. Gadson filed a lawsuit in December of that year in a federal court in Colorado. The lawsuit named Colorado Springs officers Colby J. Hickman, Matthew Anderson and Christopher K. Hummel.
