New York jury awards shoplifter $500,000 for broken ankle suffered during arrest

A Brooklyn jury has awarded more than $500,000 to a man who sued the city for a broken ankle he suffered during an arrest for shoplifting.

The jury awarded Kevin Jarman $510,000 on Wednesday for the injury.

The 50-year-old Jarman had filed the suit after pleading guilty to shoplifting at a Queens Pathmark in 2011.

The New York Post (http://bit.ly/1ssnDAX ) reports that Jarman has received other payouts from the city.

In 2005, he sued the NYPD for false arrest after a drug sale charge was dropped. The city settled for $15,000.

Last month, the city settled for $20,000 after Jarman sued police for false arrest in another drug case.
