CHICAGO – A government jury has tracked down that a Chicago police lieutenant utilized unnecessary power when he handled and beat a man during the festival outside Wrigley Field after the Cubs won the 2016 World Series.
As indicated by the Chicago Tribune, the jury on Wednesday found for Asher Kaufman in his claim against then-Sgt. Andrew Dakuras. It granted him more than $53,000 in harms.
The decision adds to the $278,000 the city has paid out to settle six past claims against Dakuras, a 26-year-office veteran. As per an online information base, there have been 73 protests enlisted against Dakuras.
Dakuras and other secret officials were working in the Wrigleyville territory the night in November 2016 when the Cubs crushed Cleveland, provoking an enormous festival outside Wrigley Field.
During the preliminary, Kaufman affirmed that he and his better half had joined the festival outside a bar close to Wrigley when Sgt. Joseph Mirus Jr. gotten him and seized a half 16 ounces of bourbon he’d purchased at a close by corner shop.
Kaufman said he thought Mirus was a bouncer at the bar and started to fight with him and Dakuras, both of whom were in regular clothes, before Dakuras snatched Kaufman’s cellphone and ran off.
Kaufman said he pursued Dakuras and had handled him when a few formally dressed and casually dressed officials jumped on him.
He said Dakuras advised him, “I love this part, free shots,” and snatched him by the hair, punched him in the face and the side of his head, hopped on him and hammered his head into the asphalt. Kaufman was captured and taken by Dakuras to an emergency clinic for treatment.
He was accused of opposing capture, battery and drinking on a public way. In 2017, an adjudicator saw him as blameworthy of a crime check of opposing capture however saw him not as liable on the battery and drinking on a public way tallies.
This week, the very jury that decided against Dakuras found that Mirus was not obligated of the means something negative for him. The city’s law division said in an explanation that it was satisfied Mirus was not found at risk and was “surveying its alternatives” in regards to Dakuras.
