Man Alleges in Lawsuit That NYPD Officers Strangled His Penis

By

Nathaniel Carter of Brooklyn claims in his lawsuit against the City of New York that NYPD officers strangled him "about the neck, placed a drawstring around his penis, and strangled his penis causing bodily injury." This allegedly occurred in June of last year on a public sidewalk in Crown Heights during what Carter termed a false arrest for consuming alcohol on a public street, but more importantly — when did the NYPD start putting drawstrings around penises and strangling them?! Unfortunately, we can't yet approximate the monetary relief for a strangled penis, as Carter seeks an unspecified amount in damages.
