Travis Price has settled his lawsuit with the City of Rock Hill for $500,000.The lawsuit came about after Travis Price was falsely arrested and then defamed by the city of Rock Hill in 2021.
It says that the moment Travis Price arrived on scene the city’s agents, employees, and representatives, knew that he had not taken any actions warranting his detention, arrest, assault, and imprisonment. He was assisting his brother Ricky Price when he was being arrested in the same incident.
Price, a father of three, had no previous criminal record and had never been arrested prior to this incident. Officer Moreno was fired and charged. In a statement sent to The Herald, the attorneys said

“Travis Price, the Rock Hill man who alleged he was falsely arrested and then defamed by the city of Rock Hill in 2021 has settled his lawsuit with the city for $500,000,“Mr. Price is a father of three and a family man whose reputation was unduly impacted following the incident by statements put out by the city of Rock Hill. He was innocent and this settlement will allow him to move forward and continue to work hard to provide for his family. Mr. Price’s motivation for filing a lawsuit was to ensure that no other innocent person has their reputation smeared by a city or police department. We are confident that that message will be delivered loud and clear today.”
