BROOKLYN - The FBI arrested a police officer from Brooklyn yesterday for allegedly pepper-spraying a man during a fight at his cousin's bar.
Prosecutors say Admir Kacamakovic, a seven-year veteran in the 62nd Precinct in Bensonhurst, was in uniform when he handcuffed the victim and sprayed him.
The officer then allegedly ran through the FBI database to find information on the victim and his cousin, who was being investigated.
Kacamakovic now faces up to 17 years behind bars.
The FBI also arrested a senior official with the city's Department of Housing and Preservation on federal corruption charges.
Prosecutors say Wendell Walters and six others received millions of dollars in kickbacks and bribes over a decade, and cost the city hundreds of thousands of dollars in overpayments to developers on several public housing projects in Brooklyn.
