NYPD whistleblower Adrian Schoolcraft settles suit for $600G

The controversial cop who said he was thrown in a psych ward for blowing the whistle on a quota system in the NYPD settled his case Tuesday for $600,000.

Adrian Schoolcraft had sued the city for a whopping $50 million in 2010 for his alleged unlawful detention at Jamaica Hospital.

He said his brothers in blue waged a campaign of harassment against him after he blew the whistle on cops using arrest quotas and fudging crime stats at the 81st Precinct covering Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn.

Schoolcraft’s claims against the hospital and two doctors still stand.

The case is to go to trial in Oct. 19, though that schedule could change in light of the deal.
