Year Description Outcome
2022

Camden County has agreed to pay Xavier Ingram $10 million after an encounter he had with police over eight years ago left him paralyzed.

In June 2014, then 21-year-old Xavier Ingram, came across three Camden County police officers on foot patrol, conducting a ‘sweep’ of an apartment complex when he was walking to a store. When Ingram exited the store, he was approached by two officers, Antonio Gennetta and Nicholas Marchiafava, who later jumped and handcuffed him even though he had already surrendered by laying on the ground with his hands in front of him. Officer Jeremy Merck came to the scene while Ingram was being arrested. The officers are accused of stomping on the back of Ingram’s neck and back and striking him. Ingram suffered severe injuries to his cervical spine due to the arrest and is now a quadriplegic. Ingram’s lawsuit claimed that Camden County officers used excessive force, which resulted in Ingram’s quadriplegia. The Camden County officers initially claimed that Ingram slipped and fell on his own regard, without any police interaction, but that claim was later shown to be false.
