DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) - Miami Township is settling the case involving former Assistant Chief John DiPietro and a teenager.
The township will pay the 17 year old girl and her family $100,000 to end the case. The family cannot sue the township or seek any further action, including any actions against DiPietro.
Major DiPietro was fired after the incident, although he is in the middle of an appeal, claiming he did not receive a fair hearing.
The case revolved around the girl's arrest for shoplifting and her treatment afterward at the Miami Twp. police department.
The teenager was hit with pepper spray during her arrest. DiPietro hosed her down in a police department garage with no one else present. The girl was naked at the time.
