Man shot in back by Airport Police officer will reach settlement

Posted: May 10, 2018 5:21 PM Updated:

Parties have agreed to settle in a lawsuit filed by a man who was shot in the back by an Airport Police officer after giving chase from Tiyan to Harmon.

As reported, Joshua John Untalan Mesa filed a $300,000 lawsuit against GIAA and airport police officer Vincent R.Q. Castro for violating his Fourth Amendment rights.

After a settlement agreement is signed, federal court filings state the plaintiff has agreed to dismiss all claims with prejudice.

Court documents won't give any details on the proposed settlement.

Mesa, meanwhile, was recently arrested on drug charges after the feds intercepted a packaged with over 50 grams of the drug "ICE." Mesa was on the receiving end of the package and reportedly gave chase into a nearby jungle where he was eventually caught.
