EAST GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WZZM) - The family of an East Grand Rapids man who died after being hit with a stun gun by police during a psychotic episode has settled its lawsuit against the city.

Stephen Bolick's father filed the federal suit following his son Matthew's death in November 2009. Terms of the settlement are confidential. Proceeds will be divided between Bolick's parents, four siblings and grandmother.

East Grand Rapids police were cleared of any criminal wrongdoing in Bolick's death, which occurred after police responded to a disturbance call at the family's home on Heather Street.
