Jurors awarded $850,000 in damages to Obrycka, who was beaten in February 2007 by off-duty Chicago police officer Anthony Abbate, who was admittedly drunk at the time. Surveillance video of the hulking Abbate pushing Obrycka to the ground behind the bar at Jesse's Shortstop Inn, then repeatedly punching and kicking her went viral online. (AP Photo/Paul Beaty)
