BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - A settlement has been reached in a dispute involving five Birmingham police officers and a man who said they used excessive force during his arrest.

Al.com reports (https://bit.ly/1qOxUBt ) the settlement between the police department and 44-year-old Anthony Warren was announced Monday morning. A trial in the case started on Sept. 22.

Warren was fleeing narcotics officers who were trying to question him in January 2008. During the pursuit, Warren hit a school bus, a patrol car and an officer who was laying a spike strip across a highway. Warren’s car eventually flipped over and officers were recorded beating him as he lay on the ground.

Warren is serving a 20-year sentenced on attempted murder charges.

The terms of the agreement haven’t been disclosed and must be approved by city officials.
