BROOKLYN - Barclays Center is facing a $4 million racial discrimination lawsuit, according to published reports.

The New York Post says three African-American men have sued the arena over behavior stemming from their lease of a luxury box. The suit says the men rented the suite earlier this month; and have since been harassed by arena security, accused of not paying their bills and have had their food and drink orders ignored.

One of the men says he was questioned by a manager when found hanging around other exclusive sections of the arena.

The suit adds that the men are employees of Ludwig's Pharmacy in Prospect Heights.

Neither the arena nor the pharmacy would comment on the case.
