Michael Terry, 37, said he was awarded a $120,000 settlement from the New York Police Department in 2005 after he was jailed for 28 days due to the mix-up with his name and that of a wanted Pennsylvania man, but he has been arrested twice since then due to the same name confusion, the New York Post reported Wednesday.
Terry said he was jailed for a week in 2008 on a warrant meant for the Pennsylvania Terry and a September arrest on the same warrant led to a strip-search and five days behind bars.
He said a second lawsuit against the police department is pending.
