HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Jordan Topinio, 29, is a wanted man.

Topinio failed to show up for court just days after he and a friend were awarded a $175,000 settlement from the city for having their civil rights violated by Honolulu Police Officers in 2014.

Topinio was kicked in the face and had a bar stool thrown at his head in an Ala Moana area game room. His friend got slapped, punched and kicked.

It was a high profile police brutality case that was caught on surveillance video. 

Topinio had to go to the hospital and had staples in head.

Then Honolulu Police Officer Vince Morre pleaded guilty to the attack and was sentenced to 30 months in federal prison. He has since been released.

Two other officers who were there did not participate in the beating but didn't report it right away and got probation.

Topinio has been in and out of jail for years for drug convictions and car theft. 

He is on HOPE probation and when he didn't show up at his hearing in December of last year, a bench warrant was issued.  

CrimeStoppers does offer up to $1,000 in reward money for information on wanted suspects, call 955-8300 or text *CRIME from your phone.
