Ehud Halevy’s complaint alleges that the 21-year-old was punched about two dozen times in an Oct. 8 beating that lasted more than two minutes.
Ehud Halevy had faced a series of charges, including trespass and assault, following an encounter with two police officers at a Crown Heights Youth Center.
The video shows Halevy being pummeled by two officers, with one cop landing more than 20 punches. His partner, a woman, joined in with a baton.
There was backlash in Brooklyn on Friday over a confrontation caught on video. It shows a police officer repeatedly punching a man during an arrest. The Jewish community in Crown Heights wants the charges against the suspect dropped.
