PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Pittsburgh City Council approved to sell structured settlement for a Pittsburgh teenager who claims he was beaten by three police officers in 2010.

Miles claims in January of 2010, he was walking to his grandmother’s house on Tiago Street when three plain clothes officers, Officers Richard Ewing, Michael Saldutte, and David Sisak confronted him.

Miles claims they beat him during an arrest attempt. The officers have said that Miles ran from them and appeared to be armed.

On Tuesday, City Council passed a bill which will pay Miles $75,000, to cover legal fees and other costs.

The civil trial for the officers in the case is scheduled to begin on July 15.
