St. Clair County recently settled a lawsuit that was brought by the family of a man who was killed by three sheriff’s officers in 2003. The man, a suspected drug dealer who had a warrant out for his arrest, had been stopped by the officers while he was driving his pickup truck. When the officers got out of their cars to apprehend the man, he allegedly started backing up his truck at the officers. The St. Clair County officers responded by firing at the man, killing him in the process. The family of the deceased man filed a wrongful death action against the county claiming that the sheriff’s officers used excessive force. In the settlement, St. Clair County admitted to no wrongdoing.
