    Quote:BALTIMORE — An elderly woman got the last word after locking a police officer in her basement, and later suing the police.

    Venus Green, who was 87 when she was handcuffed, roughed up and injured by police, will receive $95,000 as part of a settlement with Baltimore City. The city chose to settle the case instead of taking a chance in front of a jury.

    "We thought we would have a difficult time in front of a city jury, or any jury," Baltimore City solicitor George Nilson said.

    Green was so put out by what police officers did, the city said she locked one of them in her basement.

     "I was treated like a criminal," said Green, a retired educator who's now 90.
