A man arrested on suspicion of DWI won a $120,000 settlement after a Fort Worth police video shows him being slammed to the floor with his hands restrained behind his back.

The Fort Worth City Council unanimously approved the settlement agreement with 40-year-old Carey Cass Hudson on Tuesday afternoon.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports Hudson suffered a broken nose, a concussion and has brain damage from the 2008 incident at a holding facility. Driving while intoxicated charges were later dropped.

Court documents indicate an officer accused of mishandling Hudson be issued a written reprimand and ordered to seek anger-management counseling.

Police Chief Jeffrey Halstead, who took office after the incident, said the officer's actions are "disturbing" and he's held the officer as accountable as he can.
