Former NFL quarterback Josh Booty settled a lawsuit that could have a lot of people asking cops to tase me, bro.
Booty settled for $8,619 after alleging Orange County sheriff’s deputies shot him with a stun gun while they booked him for drunk driving.
“It would have been irresponsible to go to trial with that low of an
offer to settle,” a spokesman told the San Diego Union-Tribune. “We had to be responsible and settle
this lawsuit on behalf of the taxpayers.”
Last in a training camp with the Raiders, Booty spent three years with the Browns and also was on the 1997 World Champion Marlins team in baseball. He’s the older brother of John David Booty, now of the Texans.
