In a civil rights action brought against a city, its police chief and two police officers, district court's final judgment in favor of the defendants on all claims is affirmed where: 1) the district court properly dismissed defendant's claims for false arrest and malicious prosecution as his arrest was supported by probable cause; and 2) a conspiracy claim was correctly dismissed as defendant's sole contention was that the police officers conspired to commit the torts of false arrest and malicious prosecution.
