Nathaniel Carter claims that he was arrested in Crown Heights for drinking alcohol in public (a fact he denies), and was then taken to the rear of the precinct house where he was beaten and abused. Carter claims that officers used the drawstring of his pants to strangle his penis. Following his release, Carter said he called 911. At Kings County Hospital Center, he was treated for lacerations to his penis. In June 2012, Carter filed a lawsuit against the City of New York claiming that he was arrested of false pretenses, imprisoned unjustly and assaulted.
