The NYPD is facing a lawsuit from a woman who claims she was mistakenly put into a mental hospital, simply because police didn’t believe she owned her own BMW.
Kamilah Brock, a 32-year-old banker from Long Island, was pulled over in Harlem for allegedly driving without her hands on the wheel. She was arrested, then released without charges.
“I was confused and did not know what was going on, why I was being taken into custody,” Brock said to PIX11. “The officer said, ‘why are you driving without your hands on the wheel?’ I said I was dancing, I am at a light, he asked me to get out of the car.”
