Dages used a low level of force against a Black man who had allegedly assaulted the officer in May 2020.
“I describe it to people that I’ve lost everything, para ser sincero,” Dages said. “I’ve lost my career. My family was under this terror for the last year and a half now. Agradecidamente, we’ve come out victorious on that end. … And also on top of that, … my wife [and I] were set back about $ 100,000 in legal fees. So we’ve been put through the wringer in the name of justice.”
Dages said he was forced to sell his house due to Black Lives Matter protesters marching by.
