Tybee reaches settlement with family of Tased teen

TYBEE ISLAND, GA (WTOC) - The city of Tybee Island has reached a settlement in a lawsuit involving the Tasering of an autistic teen.

The family of Clifford Grevemberg filed the lawsuit after police used a stun gun on the 18-year-old in May.

Mayor Jason Buelterman said the city has agreed to pay $250,000 to the family. Authorities said Grevemberg appeared drunk and became agitated when confronted outside a bar.

He was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct. That charge was later dropped.
