Police recruit horseplay incident could cost City of Racine $50,000
RACINE, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Horseplay from a Racine police recruit could cost the city $50,000 in workers compensation benefits.
The City Attorney's Office says the recruit was messing around during a training class in Kenosha last year. The recruit grabbed the legs of a Kenosha police recruit, hurting them. The injury led to more than $70,000 in medical bills.
Kenosha and Racine have reached a $50,000 settlement.
The Racine Common Council will vote on the settlement next Tuesday.
