Salt Lake officials have settled the case involving a former Salt Lake police officer who administrators say slapped a Highland High School student in January.
The teen, who was taken into the school's security office and unexpectedly "slapped" by an officer, was awarded $63,000, according to a settlement agreement made available Tuesday.
At least two security officers witnessed Salt Lake police detective Constantine Rodin slap the teen, a school spokesman said in March. They immediately contacted the boy's parents and Salt Lake police supervisors.
Rodin, who was not the school's resource officer, was at Highland as part of an investigation, officials said. Rodin was fired from the department last month, though police would not disclose the reason for his termination.
