MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Former Sheriff David Clarke did not violate a Milwaukee man's civil rights after calling him a snowflake on social media.

That's the verdict from a Federal Jury less than one hour ago.

last year, Dan Black says he was detained at Mitchell International on Clarke's orders after shaking his head at the then-sheriff on a flight from Dallas to Milwaukee.

Black testified, saying he was humiliated when the Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office posted a picture of Black on Facebook, saying "Cheer up snowflake, if Sheriff Clarke were really to harass you, you wouldn't be around to whine about it."

Clarke was not at the trial but his attorneys say they were gratified with the jury's verdict.

Dan Black had no comment.
