    Stripper’s chaperone settles suit against Brookline police officers

    A stripper’s chaperone has settled a federal lawsuit against four off-duty Brookline police officers who he said assaulted him at a bachelor party in 2010. Under the settlement, the officers agreed to pay Robert Sonia of Lynn an undisclosed amount, attorneys for both sides said Tuesday. Sonia filed the suit in US District Court in April 2011, saying the four police officers assaulted him before conspiring to concoct a story that would lead to his arrest. Sonia’s suit stemmed from events on March 28, 2010, when the officers — Daniel ­Avila, Brendan Kelliher, David Hill, and Yu Kajita — called Shamrock Entertainment in Lynn to request a stripper, ­Sonia said.
