FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. – A Flagstaff man who was wrongfully arrested on suspicion of selling LSD has offered to settle with the city for $350,000.

Tremayne Nez spent more than 30 hours in jail after being arrested in June as part of a multi-agency drug operation.

He said he has suffered anxiety, embarrassment, loss of wages and damage to his reputation.

The Flagstaff Police Department said it was a case of mistaken identity and apologized to him.

But Nez said even mistakes should have consequences.

His attorney filed a claim with the city in early December.
