Robbinsdale officials and the insurer of the city have agreed to $70,000 to settle a suit filed by Amy Koopman. Amy Koopman was charged with livestreaming police holding two men who had been pulled over while they held Koopman at gunpoint. Koopman was on the other side of the intersection and video-recording the arrest was taken. Koopman was standing on the opposite side of the intersection while video-recording the arrest. A judge dismissed her charges, saying that “no reasonable officer” could find her actions to be obstructed or interfere with their duties.
