2009_06_ltrarrest Gothamist talks with Chrissie Brodigan, the woman who was arrested earlier today for taking her sick dog out of it’s carrier on the L train. In addition to misogynistic comments, she says her arresting officer Joel Witriol “punched me in the back (there are bruises), he handcuffed me, and in the scuffle grabbed my breasts and pinched them.” She asks that witnesses file complaints with the 90th precinct because Witriol “shouldn’t be able to do this to women—to anyone.” |Gothamist|
