HENDERSON, NV (FOX5) -

One of the officers videotaped beating a man during a traffic stop was identified Wednesday as a 9-year veteran of Henderson police.

Sgt. Brett Seekatz was one of the officers videotaped beating Adam Greene near Lake Mead Boulevard and Boulder Highway in 2010, according to Keith Paul with Henderson police.

Seekatz is still working for the police department, although officials said he was disciplined following the beating.

According to the website Transparent Nevada, Sgt. Seekatz was paid a base salary of $96,869 in 2010, but his total pay, including overtime, was $109,460.

Greene was suffering a diabetic shock at the time of the videotaped beating, which also involved Nevada Highway Patrol troopers.

Henderson City Council reached a six-figure settlement with Greene Tuesday.
