Boston journalist Chris Faraone has filed a lawsuit against the New York Police Department, claiming they beat and arrested him illegally while he was there covering the one-year anniversary of Occupy Wall Street for the Boston Phoenix.
Faraone, 34, now an editor at the alternative Weekly Dig, says in the suit that on Sept. 17, 2012, he was “photographing, observing and investigating” the scene at One Chase Manhattan Plaza. The suit says an officer ordered other officers to “stop, tackle, batter, search, arrest, detain and imprison” him, for no good reason, he claims.
