Borough President Eric Adams supports postal worker Glenn Grays’ wrongful arrest claim
A postal worker is fighting back with the support of the borough president after he claims he was wrongfully arrested while on the job.
Cellphone video shows postal worker Glenn Grays being taken away in handcuffs by plainclothes NYPD officers.
Grays couldn't speak on camera due to pending litigation, but his family says the arrest stemmed from an incident before the camera was rolling.
They claim that while Grays was delivering mail, a car drove dangerously close to him. Grays allegedly yelled at the driver, but didn't realize it was NYPD officers because they were in an unmarked car.
Borough President Eric Adams is supporting Grays and urged the NYPD to take disciplinary action against the officers involved.
"You're trying to figure out what went wrong, but then when you see a video that shows nothing went wrong, it's hard not to believe the only reason Glenn was handcuffed is because of the color of the skin," he says.
Adams was told by the NYPD that Grays was disorderly, resisted arrest and was issued a summons. The NYPD told News 12 that the matter is under internal review.
