Photojournalist Shot by Ohio Deputy Settles Civil Rights Lawsuit

A lawsuit filed by photojournalist for the Springfield News-Sun Andrew Grimm against Clark County has been settled in federal court.

The lawsuit was filed after Grimm drove to New Charlisle in September 2017 to photograph a lighting storm.

Grimm was preparing to then photograph a traffic stop being carried out by Clark County deputy Jacob Shaw when Shaw mistook his camera tripod for a gun and shot him in the side.

That’s Shaw’s story, at least.

Video, which can be seen above, shows Shaw conducting the traffic stop.

Towards the end of the video, Shaw’s arms briefly raise and gun shots can be heard, although it’s difficult to see Grimm in the video.

“Hey, it’s me. You shot me,” Grimm can be heard saying.

“Andy, Andy, Andy!” Shaw, who is apparently acquainted with Grimm, says before radioing shots fired.

“Oh, my God dude!”

“You’re going to be OK, Andy,” deputy Shaw says.

“Dude, you pulled that out like a gun out of the back of the Jeep.”

“I waved,” Grimm replies.

‘You’re going to be OK, Andy.”

“I know; I know; I get it,” Grimm says before the video ends.

Grimm declined to state the amount the lawsuit was settled for, but said it’s somewhere between $100,000 and $1 million.

“They say a good litigation is when neither side is happy,” Grimm told the Springfield News-Sun.

A statement was released by the Clark County Sheriff’s Office Friday afternoon.

“The lawsuit between Andy Grimm and the Clark County Sheriff’s Office has been resolved in a manner that is mutually satisfactory to both parties. The sheriff’s office will continue the hard work of protecting and serving the citizens of Clark County. We wish Mr. Grimm the best in his future endeavors,” the statement released to the News-Sun said.

Grimm said he plans on leaving Clark County, where he’s spent the vast majority of his life, for the safety of his family.

” For the safety of my wife and family,” he explained.

A grand jury cleared Shaw of wrongdoing after reviewing video and investigating the shooting.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
