DENVER (AP) - A federal jury has awarded a blind man $400,000 after he was injured during an arrest by Denver police.

According to the Denver Post (https://tinyurl.com/px6penc ), Philip White of Eagle was in Denver for a conference on ways to help the blind.

White was arrested after he refused to leave following a dispute over his bus trip to return home in 2012 and asked to touch an officer’s badge to verify his identity.

Instead, attorneys say White’s head was slammed into a ticket counter and he was injured.

Police say they reviewed the case and found no policy violations.
