A former banker and movie executive who said police beat him with batons in a bizarre street confrontation has lost his $20 million excessive force claim against the Los Angeles Police Department.
Mulligan said that he was driven to the drug to deal with sleeping problems but denied the substance made him paranoid at the time of a confrontation with officers.
The officers painted a portrait of an uncontrollable man frothing at the mouth. They denied beating him with batons.
