JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — A settlement has been reached in the case of a pregnant woman tackled by police inside St. Vincent’s Medical Center five years ago.
Surveillance video showed Melanie Williams running into the emergency room looking for help because she was in premature labor, bleeding and sick.
Police followed her inside and arrested her, as seen on the video.
Williams sued those officers, and both sides reached a deal outside of federal court Tuesday for Williams to receive $65,000.
