An anti-war protester wounded by a police projectile during the 2008 Republican National Convention has settled his excessive force lawsuit against the officer and cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul.
Mick Kelly reached a settlement Wednesday. The dollar amount wasn't disclosed.
Kelly says he'll give $5,000 from the settlement to the Committee to Stop FBI Repression, and he'll donate to other progressive causes too.
He was protesting Sept. 4, 2008, when authorities say he harassed a police horse with a banner, then lunged at an officer. Kelly denies those claims and says he did nothing wrong when he was shot in the abdomen with a marking round.
Kelly was bruised but had no internal injuries.
An insurance policy is covering the city's claims over alleged convention-related police misconduct.
