Arizona man offers to settle for $350K after wrongful arrest in Flagstaff
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.
