Year Description Outcome
2021

Karen Garner, a 73-year-old woman with dementia, filed a lawsuit against the Loveland Police Department after suffering multiple injuries when being forcibly detained by two police officers. The city settled her case for $3 million in September 2021.

The civil case, filed following her arrest in June 2020, alleged that Loveland police officers used excessive force when detaining Ms. Garner, who had been accused of leaving a Walmart without paying for her items. Following her arrest, police officers were seen mocking her arrest and neglecting to give her medical attention for her fractured arm, dislocated shoulder, and sustained bruises from the arrest. Garner’s case is one of several recent allegations of the Loveland Department using excessive force in the last year.

Compensation
$3,000,000.00
2021

Preston Sowl was awarded $300,000 in settlement of an excessive force lawsuit against the Loveland Police Department.

Sowl filed a lawsuit against the City of Loveland, the Loveland Police Department, and Loveland police officers Paul Ashe and Benjamin DeLima, Det. Clint Schnorr and Sgt. Brian Bartnes. In the lawsuit, Sowl claimed that the officers violated Sowl's constitutional rights when they arrested him for refusing to answer questions as a witness about a motorcycle crash outside of a Loveland bar in September 2019. Sowl was arrested by Officer Ashe and claimed that he needed shoulder surgery following the incident. The arrest was captured on body-worn camera footage.
