A former banker and movie executive who said police beat him with batons in a bizarre street confrontation lost his $20 million excessive force claim on Friday against the Los Angeles Police Department.
A former executive who claims he was beaten by two Los Angeles police officers has acknowledged snorting so-called bath salts but not at the time of the incident.
Two Los Angeles police officers denied Wednesday that they beat a former bank executive with a baton during a bizarre encounter that ended with broken bones and a $20 million lawsuit.
Brian Mulligan acknowledged that he had used a drug mixture known as bath salts in the weeks leading up to the May 2012 incident.
Mulligan, once a globe-trotting executive who logged a million air miles a year, said he was driven to the drug to deal with sleeping problems but denied the substance made him paranoid during the confrontation.
