Lawyer and former senator, Ronald “Ronnie” Marks, says he will take legal action against the New York Police Department after being injured when he was arrested in New York Sunday night.
Marks told I-Witness News that he was arrested when another man who was being harassed by NYPD officers called his attention to the situation.
Marks said he explained to the NYPD officer that while he is a lawyer, he is not licensed to practise in New York.
He said turned away to notify another lawyer who is licensed to practise in New York about what was happening and the NYDP officer floored him (Marks) with a blow to the back, then handcuffed him.
He said he and two other men were arrested but all charges against then were dismissed today.
Marks spoke to I-Witness News just before seeing a doctor shortly before 7 p.m. Monday.
He spoke of some of the injuries he suffered.
