SPRINGFIELD – The city has reached a settlement with Michael Ververis, a FedEx driver from Connecticut who sued police after he said he was beaten and choked during an unjustified arrest in 2011.

David P. Hoose, a lawyer for Ververis, 26, declined comment. Lawyers for the city could not immediately be reached.

Ververis alleges in a complaint filed last year that police targeted him as he was driving away from the city’s entertainment district on Jan. 9, 2011. He argued police struck his car with a flashlight as he was traveling out with two friends. When he demanded a badge number, they dragged him out of the car, choking and beating him in front of a crowd of bystanders, the complaint states.
