The University of California will pay up after its police pepper-sprayed students last year, according to reports.
UC regents approved an undisclosed settlement for the 21 UC Davis students and alumni who received a point-blank pepper-spraying from campus police during a Nov. 18, 2011, incident.
The settlement must be approved by a federal judge before its details can be made public, according to the Santa Rosa Press Democrat.
Video of the incident, in which a riot gear-clad former UC Davis police Lt. John Pike can be seen walking up and down before a line of students blocking a campus pathway, spraying them with pepper spray, "triggered outrage across the nation," according to the newspaper.
Pike has since been fired, and a report released in April said Pike and other UC Davis officers "used poor judgment and violated policy," the newspaper reported.
