“When Andrew Mossberg, then 50, stumbled upon what he says was a man beating a woman in Miami Beach in 2013, he immediately assumed the man was a thieving bandit. So Mossberg stepped in to help. It turned out the man, Philippe Archer, was an undercover Miami Beach detective — but Mossberg says the cop still didn’t think twice about beating his face to a pulp.

After a lengthy complaint process, Mossberg sued the City of Miami Beach this past January. Yesterday he and the city settled the case — and the city paid him $100,000.”
