Split Decision Reached for Jordan Miles Case

Jurors reach split decision in Jordan Miles case

Jordan Miles awarded a settlement, but jury decided that the officers who caused his injuries didn't use excessive force. 

A federal jury on Monday decided three police officers wrongfully arrested a Homewood man four years ago, but didn't use excessive force. The unanimous verdict is the latest development in the public controversy that has surrounded the arrest of Jordan Miles since pictures of his bruised and swollen face first surfaced shortly after his Jan. 12, 2010, arrest.
