Defendant Officers Delmonico and Carey stopped plaintiff's car for an alleged brake light. Officers illegally searched Plaintiff's car, arrested him, and took him to the 75th Precinct for an apparent warrant. Since there was no warrant, Officers made a bogus gravity knife charge for a utility knife, which was later dismissed.
