The Nashville Metro Council has approved a $130,000 settlement in a civil rights suit with a woman who was arrested after a 2011 traffic stop, The Tennessean reports. Andrea Miller was arrested while driving home from work. The officer claims she ran a stop sign, and both agree that when he attempted to pull her over, she waited until she reached her driveway rather than pulling over to the side of the road. The officer claimed Miller jerked away from him, and so he handcuffed her, placed her in his patrol car and searched her vehicle. It was later found that the officer misstated details on the arrest warrant.
