Settlement reached in lawsuit filed on behalf of Carlos Adrian Ingram Lopez’s 2-year-old daughter

TUCSON (KVOA) - A legal battle connected to the case of a man who died in Tucson Police Department custody earlier this year has now been settled out of court.

The lawsuit was filed on behalf of Carlos Adrian Ingram Lopez's 2-year-old daughter.

Lopez died last April after being handcuffed, following a 911 call by his grandmother.

Prior to his death, Lopez was said to be acting out-of-control - and under the influence of cocaine.

Three officers involved in his arrest resigned before they could be fired from TPD.

 But Pima County prosecutors decided they would not face any criminal charges.

Lawyers were asking for $10 million against the City of Tucson and $3 million from each of the three officers.

 But, at this point, attorneys aren't saying what the amount of the settlement is meanwhile, another lawsuit, filed on behalf of Lopez's other family members is still making its way through court.
