Foley Settles Lawsuit with Coronado for $5.5 Million

Former San Diego Chargers football player Steve Foley is getting $5.5 million  from the city of Coronado to settle his lawsuit against the city. Foley was shot by off-duty police officer Aaron Mansker nearly two years ago. The injuries ended his professional football career. Coronado City Attorney Steven Boehmer says the city did not admit any liability in the case.

Boehmer: I think it's a good resolution for both parties. The parties kept the case within their control and I think both parties are pleased with the outcome in bringing the matter to a close.

Boehmer says the majority of the settlement will be paid by an insurance carrier. The rest will be paid by the city from a one point nine million dollar fund. Boehmer says Coronado has already made changes to its off-duty police procedures. That came as a direct result of the shooting.
