The family of a Corvette driver shot and killed by police last year after an hour-long chase that was televised live will receive a $5 million settlement following a vote Wednesday by the Los Angeles City Council.

Two city council members voted against the settlement, saying they felt the city had a good chance of winning a lawsuit filed by the family of Brian Newt Beaird, 51.

Last December, Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies began chasing Beaird in his Corvette in Cudahy after they suspected he was a drunk or reckless driver. When the chase reached the LA city limits, the LAPD took over as Beaird continued to drive erratically and at high speeds on freeways and surface streets in his C6 Corvette.
