    Foley's lawyer, Harvey Levine, said his client wants to get on with his life.

    Foley reached the agreement last week with the city of Coronado and Officer Aaron Mansker. Terms were not disclosed until Monday. The Coronado City Council was to meet Monday to consider approving the settlement.

    Foley was shot in his leg, hip and hand in September 2006. Mansker was off-duty when the shooting occurred. He tailed Foley's car home from San Diego on suspicion the driver was drunk.
