Shreveport pays Garbarino $400,000

The City of Shreveport has reached a $400,000 out-of-court settlement with a Mooringsport woman who claims she was injured while being booked on a DWI charge in November 2007.

The city also agreed Friday to drop all charges against Angela Garbarino, city attorney Terri Scott said. In turn, she said, Garbarino and her attorney Gary Bowers have agreed not to pursue any legal action against the city or the former officer involved, Wiley Willis.
Talks began about 9 a.m. Friday and resulted in an agreement by midafternoon.
The settlement is not an admission of guilt by either the city or Garbarino, Scott said.
