Vancouver Island man wins $120,000 court award in lawsuit over police brutality

Don Lapshinoff filed a lawsuit against the District of Saanich and four of its police officers—Brent Wray, Erin Wagg, Jason Whittaker, and Matt Cawsey—in connection with an incident on May 25, 2010.

According to a recent decision by Justice Ian Meiklem, Lapshinoff, then 55 years old, was suspected of impaired driving.

In the course of being arrested, Lapshinoff's shoulder and arm were injured. He has since twice undergone surgery and has an "irreparable rotator cuff tear", which may eventually require shoulder replacement.
