A gay man, Louis Falcone, alleges he was brutally beaten by NYPD officers at his house while they yelled homophobic slurs at him. Falcone say he was handcuffed but never arrested or charged with any crime.

The encounter began when Falcone’s mother called 911 to report a fight between Falcone and his brother. The police allege Falcone became “belligerent and uncooperative” and “spit blood in the face of one of them.”

The incident was captured on video by someone across the street.

Falcone also says the police threatened to kill his dog. He’s planning to sue, alleging his civil rights were violated.

In recent years, gay rights groups have protested what they allege is a “homophobia” problem in the NYPD. There have been multiple reported incidents of NYPD officers using homophobic slurs. The NYPD has also been criticized for entrapping gay men in sexual situations and then charging them with indecency.
