A man who suffered a catastrophic brain injury after being slammed into a concrete wall by a King County sheriff’s deputy six years ago has died, our online news partner The Seattle Times reported Friday.

Christopher Sean Harris, who was living and working in Edmonds at the time of the incident, died Thursday, according to the attorney for his wife, Sarah Harris.

Christopher Harris was permanently disabled after he was mistakenly identified as a suspect, chased and then pushed into a wall outside Seattle’s Cinerama theater by Deputy Matthew Paul. King County and the sheriff’s office settled a lawsuit filed by Harris’ wife, Sarah Harris, for $10 million in 2011 after she claimed Paul had been negligent and used excessive force.
