An NYPD sergeant repeatedly called a man walking in Brooklyn the c before arresting him on bogus charges that were later dismissed, a new suit claims.
Diquan Fedee says he was walking on Marcus Garvey Boulevard near Willoughby St. in Bedford-Stuyvesant on July 10 of last year and had not “not done anything remotely unlawful, and had no contraband of any sort on his person,” papers read.
At 11:05 a.m., an unmarked police car approached and an officer inside the ride yelled, “Yo.”
Fedee, 21, says in his suit filed in Manhattan Federal Court that he was on the phone and ignored the man who he later learned was a cop.
Four cops — who are not identified in papers — got out of the car and rifled through Feede’s bookbag, papers say.
When Fedee said they weren’t allowed to do that, an NYPD sergeant allegedly said “You hate the police, right ni—-?”
The sergeant called Fedee the slur more than once, papers say.
One of the cops allegedly told Fedee to “turn the f— around.”
A cop punched Fedee in the face, knocked him down, and then other officers put their knees in his back and handcuffed him, Fedee says.
During the confrontation, a cop put his hand around Fedee’s throat, the suit says…
“We will review the allegations and investigate the facts once we are served,” a Law Department spokesman said.
The NYPD declined comment.
