LYNCHBURG, VIRGINIA – The owner of a Lynchburg bus lot has won his lawsuit against a police officer he says wrongfully arrested him.
A jury has awarded Sam McConville $80,000 after an incident in March of 2008.
McConnville says Officer Ben Currin was sitting in his cruiser in the private bus lot.
He says after being told to leave, the officer spun around, throwing up rocks.
McConnville says he was arrested when he shouted at the officer.
McConnville’s attorney had been seeking $370,000.
