05.24.12 – Henley & Henley, P.C. gets $500,000 for client in settlement
The City of Dallas settled a case from an incident that occurred in January 2011 for $500,000 today. Roderick Lyles was driving his car when he was pulled over. It then turned into a federal civil rights case based on excessive use of force by Dallas Police.
“He [Mr. Lyles] had a warrant out for his arrest for driving while he had his license suspended and he had his license suspended because he could not pay the insurance,” said Geoff Henley, Lyles’ attorney. “He told the officers at the time, ‘You’re gonna need two handcuffs for me to reach around,’ ” Mr. Henley continued.
Officer Quintemes Williams and two other officers had trouble cuffing a cooperating Mr. Lyles and they fell over with Mr. Lyles landing on Officer Williams.
“When Rodarick falls on Williams, Williams blows up like Mount Vesuvius. That’s when you start seeing all the activity on the ground and he blows up pretty fast,” Geoff Henley said.
Video shows Williams repeatedly striking Lyles in the head and striking Lyles with his flashlight until the flashlight was taken away by other officers. Then Williams used his feet to kick Lyles, pepper spray etc. when as shown in the video Mr Lyles was not resisting at all and was asking why he was being treated in this manner.
