Motorist Who Flipped Off Cop Gets $3,000
MOBILE, Ala. -- The Mobile Police Department has been ordered to pay $3,000 to a government engineer who was arrested for cursing and making an obscene hand gesture to an officer.
He sought $10,000 in damages from the police department because of time lost from work, the threat of losing his job, and the embarrassment of being put in jail. Mobile County District Judge Michael McMaken awarded DeBoi the money last week, saying that police officers must have "thicker skin" than the general public.
