Jasper police agree to settle civil rights lawsuit
A settlement has been reached in a civil rights lawsuit out of Jasper.
The City of Jasper and its police department settled with Keyarika Diggles for $75,000.
It stems from a case in may of this year when Diggles said she was assaulted by former Jasper police officers Ricky Grissom and Ryan Cunningham as former dispatcher Lindsey Davenport watched.
Diggles was being booked for a unpaid parking ticket.
She said she was dragged into a cell and was left on the floor for hours and was then stripped and illegally searched.
