WESTBURY (WABC) -- Two Nassau County police officers are under investigation after video surfaced that showed them violently striking a driver during a traffic stop.
Now, Kyle Howell, a 20-year-old drug suspect facing multiple charges, is filing a lawsuit against the officers.
The Westbury man says he has been repeatedly pulled over by cops, these two in particular.
The videotaped incident took place on April 25, when the officers pulled him over for having a cracked windshield. A nearby surveillance camera was rolling as the officers began to punch and knee him.
