Defendant Officers arrived at 794 Flushing Ave and screamed, with profanity, to be let into the building. The officers eventually broke into the building and rushed up the stairs towards the Plaintiffs' apartment. Three of the Plaintiffs were handcuffed and placed in a police vehicle, while the fourth was struck by the officers and not allowed to return to her home. A warrant-less search of the home was conducted and no illegal substances were discovered. Eventually, all four Plaintiffs were taken to the precinct and placed in holding cells. They were all charged with OGA and all of the cases were dismissed.
