A 48-year-old North Naples man Tasered while handcuffed in a jail cell after an unlawful arrest in 2005 settled his federal lawsuit against Collier County Sheriff Kevin Rambosk and four deputies for $95,000.
The settlement came a day after the agency’s attorney agreed to a $50,000 settlement in another Taser case involving a teen who died, which deputies blamed on a drug overdose.
U.S. District Judge Paul Magnuson signed an order Tuesday, dropping the lawsuit against Rambosk, corporals Dennis Sheridan and Scott Freiburger, Deputy Autumn Brown and Sgt. John Dennison, who was fired and sentenced to probation after he Tasered Robert Franklin Browne in 2005.
Browne denied being combative, only being angry and cursing at Sheridan, Freiburger and Brown for coming into his home on Oct. 5, 2005, after he admitted he’d sideswiped a car and left the scene because he had no cell phone
