Boulder underwear arrest worth $10,000

The lawyer for a man who was arrested for addressing the Boulder City Council in his boxer shorts says the city has agreed to pay $10,000 to settle his civil rights claim.

Attorney David Lane says Seth Brigham agreed to the deal Tuesday. In exchange for the payment, Brigham agreed not to file a lawsuit.

Brigham was handcuffed and arrested in February on suspicion of obstructing police and trespassing after he spoke to the council clad in his underwear.

Brigham said he was trying to make a point about a proposal to criminalize nudity. The charges were later dropped.
