SALT LAKE CITY -- While walking home after the Utah-BYU football game last year, a man claimed he was beaten and injured by a Veterans Affairs police officer and later filed a lawsuit. Now a settlement in the case has been reached.

A judge signed a $45,000 settlement between Greg Davis and both the Department of Veterans Affairs and the officer involved. This dismisses all civil claims.

Davis and his fiancée crossed through the parking lot of the VA Hospital to get to their ride after the game. VA police accused them of being drunk in public.

Davis said an officer slammed him into a fence, used pepper spray and dragged him by handcuffs.
