SAN DIEGO (AP) - The city of San Diego has agreed to pay $15,000 to settle a lawsuit filed by a homeless man who accused police of harassment and improper arrests.

The Union-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/2kt7FFa ) that Zack Green, who has lived on the streets in and around Pacific Beach for decades, will get $7,500 and his lawyers will collect $7,500 in legal fees and other costs. The initial complaint sought $1 million in damages.

Green accepted the settlement last month, and the agreement was approved by the judge Monday.

Green told the newspaper in September that he was wrongly and repeatedly targeted and jailed without facing criminal charges.

The City Attorney’s Office did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the settlement.
