State police pay big money to settle lawsuit.

In Allentown, court documents show the Pennsylvania state police have paid $195,000 to settle a lawsuit filed by a New York man who spent 29 days in jail after troopers mistook homemade soap for cocaine. Alexander Bernstein’s attorney tells the Morning Call his client has also settled claims against the company that produced the allegedly faulty drug test that troopers used during a November 2013 traffic stop.
