CROWN HEIGHTS - Nearly 200 Crown Heights residents hit the streets today to demonstrate against police brutality.

The protests were spurred by the recent arrest of Ehud Haleavy, a 21-year-old man beaten by police. Protesters are demanding that the charges be dropped against Haleavy, who was found sleeping naked in the women's section of the ALIYA Institute.

The incident was caught on surveillance camera, while the NYPD says one officer is being reprimanded and the incident is being investigated.
