BROOKLYN - Three officers accused of sodomizing Michael Mineo say they want to add another officer as a defendant in the civil case.

Officers Richard Kern, Alex Cruz and Andrew Morales were tried and acquitted of criminal charges earlier this year. They say fellow officer Kevin Maloney was involved in arresting Mineo.

Mineo accused Kern of sodomizing him in a subway station. Cruz and Morales were accused of covering up the alleged incident.
