The Nashville Metro Council will vote tonight on whether to settle a lawsuit with a man who was beaten by Davidson County Sheriff’s officers while being booked for public intoxication, The Nashville Scene reports. Timothy Warren filed a lawsuit after the 2014 incident, and the city is poised to settle the matter for $160,000. Metro paid out another six-figure settlement for a 2011 police misconduct claim back in September.
