CROWN HEIGHTS - A man who says he was beaten and called anti-gay slurs by police is now suing the NYPD for $100 million.

Jabbar Campbell says police came to his Crown Heights home in January after getting a call about a noise complaint while he was hosting a party. He claims police disabled a security camera in front of his home, then raided his apartment. Campbell says he was also beaten and called anti-gay slurs by the police.

Campbell was charged with resisting arrest and disorderly conduct, but the charges were dropped. Campbell is also asking for an investigation to be done on the NYPD, and for the officers who allegedly attacked him to be fired.
