The former UC Davis Police officer who was identified as the pepper-sprayer in the 2011 on-campus protest will likely receive compensation in a settlement with the university, reports the Daily Democrat.

John Pike is seeking compensation based on psychiatric injury. A psychiatrist agreed upon by Pike's attorney and UC Davis diagnosed him with a "moderate" disability and said he should be eligible for worker's compensation, according to the Daily Democrat.

A previously scheduled Aug. 13 hearing on Pike's case has been canceled while UC Davis and Pike's attorney work on a settlement.

In a statement to the press, UC Davis said, "Although the agreement has not been completed, the university expects that, in accordance with the board rating, John Pike will receive financial compensation," according to the Daily Democrat.

The Daily Democrat has more on the story.
