Cop Brings Gun to a Snowball Fight Could Cost NYC $10 MillionSubmitted by meekandmild on Wed, 02/05/2014 - 12:00
In February of 2010 off duty NYPD officer, Sgt. Adonis Ramirez, 34, after being hit by a snowball in the leg, drew his concealed weapon on a group of young men and ordered them to kneel against a fence. He now stands accused of false arrest and battery.
Inconsistencies in his story have been revealed during his recent testimony in a $10 million dollar civil suit brought against the NYPD.
In his initial report to officers Ramirez claimed that while walking, “he felt himself get struck on the back by multiple snowballs.” While testifying in court last Tuesday he admitted that it was only “one” snowball and that it struck him in the leg.
