City to settle topless jumping jacks case

`The city likely will pay $35,000 to settle the claim of a girl forced to perform jumping jacks topless in front of a police officer to avoid arrest.

The Pensacola City Council’s finance committee on Monday forwarded the proposed settlement to a Thursday vote before the full council.

The victim’s attorney, Robert Bleach, said after the meeting that his client will be “glad to put this ugly incident behind her” and will use the money for her college education.

“She certainly didn’t want to go through a trial and relive the whole thing all over again,” he said.’
