Franklin Ave. Family to File Police Brutality Suit Against the NYPD. Claim oldest son was beaten and relatives were hit with pepper spray when they tried to intervene
Five members of a Crown Heights family have filed civilian complaints against the NYPD, saying cops beat a 32-year-old man until he was unconscious and pepper sprayed four other family members who tried to intervene.
The family has hired an attorney and is planning to file a civil suit against cops in a few weeks, said their lawyer Alex Umansky.
NYPD Deputy Commissioner Paul Browne said that “the man pushed an officer in the face” and officers were forced to use the pepper spray to subdue those who resisted being handcuffed.
