The city of Elmhurst will pay a Homer Glen woman a $25,000 settlement after she incurred an injury following an arrest for driving under the influence of alcohol last year.
Linda Wotjas filed a complaint after "an incident occurred" between her and police officer Arthur Ciszewski "that resulted in personal injury to Wotjas," on or about April 29, 2010, according to a settlement agreement Monday.
According to the agreement, the incident occurred while Wotjas was being processed at Elmhurst Police Station for her DUI arrest.
The agreement also states that the city will pay the settlement on behalf of Ciszewski, as they are obligated to indemnify him for liability while he is on the job.
The agreement is not an admission that Ciszewski violated any law.
Wotjas will receive the settlement via her attorneys within seven days of the execution of the agreement.
