Settlements
Year Description Outcome
2021

In December 2021, Williamson County officials reached a $5 million settlement with the family of Javier Amber, a 40-year-old Black man who was killed during an arrest in 2019.

In March 2019, Amber was pulled over by Williamson County police officers following a car chase.  It was alleged that Amber failed to dim his headlights for oncoming traffic. When two police officers apprehended him, they tased him several times, which led to his death later that night.  Amber claimed he was sick and that he could not breathe while the officers were tasing him. His family filed a wrongful death lawsuit following his death, which was settled by the city in December 2021.

Compensation
$5,000,000.00
