LONGMONT, Colo. (AP) - The city of Longmont has settled a lawsuit brought by a woman who said she was injured as police arrested her during a domestic disturbance.

The Longmont Times-Call (https://bit.ly/1xGLtLg) reports that the city agreed to pay $92,500 to Stacy Lock even though the police department maintains that its officers followed its policies and procedures.

Lock claimed officers broke her ribs and punctured her lungs during the arrest at her home in 2013. Police say she was injured before the officers arrived.

Lock pleaded guilty to an obstruction charge related to the disturbance but resisting arrest and assault charges were dropped against her.
