A Maryland man who was arrested by Philadelphia police trying to eject several people from Lincoln Financial Field before the 2011 Eagles home opener was awarded $75,000 in damages Tuesday by a Philadelphia jury.
The 12-member Common Pleas Court jury returned its verdict for Harry Mims, 32, a real estate office manager who was arrested before the start of the Sept. 25 game against the New York Giants.
Mims' lawyer, Jonathan James, who handled the civil case with partner Michael C. Schwartz, said the jury returned its verdict after about 10 hours of deliberations since Friday. The jury did not impose punitive damages against Officers Mark Alston, Joseph Carter, or Francis Kelly. The lawsuit had sought damages for false arrest, malicious prosecution, and assault.
