In the latest New York Police Department incident, a cyclist claims she was falsely arrested by New York police.

New York civil rights violation lawyer David Perecman speculates she may have been arrested for contempt of cop. Or, as police prefer to call it, disorderly conduct. Arresting an individual for contempt of cop is a civil rights violation in New York, especially when a false arrest in New York is a result of an exchange of words with a policeman.

New York civil rights violation lawyer Perecman explains that NYPD officers who arrest individuals for talking back can be found liable for false arrest and for violating civil rights and constitutional rights.
