CHICAGO, May 19 (UPI) -- A federal jury found several Chicago police officers guilty of battery and assault outside of a bar, while rejecting a suit against the city of Chicago.
Four men who accused several off-duty officers of participating in a brawl outside Jefferson Tap Bar & Grille in 2006 were awarded a combined $33,700 in compensatory and punitive damages against the officers, the Chicago Tribune reported.
The city of Chicago was cleared of responsibility, as well as two of the six officers named as defendants in the civil suit, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.
