He was the man arrested during Toronto Police Sergeant Ryan Russell's funeral procession he held up signs saying things like "No Police State."

His name is Eric Brazau and Friday, in small claims court, a judge found he was wrongfully arrested.

Brazau had been seeking $25,000 in damages, but the justice found that he was treated well when he was arrested so only awarded him $1000.

Brazau told reporters he wasn't too happy with the award, and says he'll appeal that in court.
