69-year-old Jerry Blasingame, who was tased by a police officer in Atlanta and left paralyzed from the neck down, has been awarded $100 million by a federal jury, the New York Post reports.

The incident occurred on July 10, 2018. The then-65-year-old Blasingame was accosted by Officer Jon Grubbs while he was asking drivers for money in downtown Atlanta. The two engaged in a foot chase and as Blasingame ran away, Grubbs shocked him with a stun gun, causing the elderly man to fall and break his neck. Blasingame was admitted to Grady Memorial Hospital’s trauma center, where it was determined that he had suffered a severe spinal cord injury and lost the use of all four limbs. His injury ensured that he would need round-the-clock care and live in a residential care facility for the rest of his life, the Independent reports.
