Brooklyn, NY - Man Arrested for Hate Crime after Pouring Beer on Turkish Neighbor
Brooklyn, NY - An orthodox Jewish man has been charged with assault and criminal mischief as hate crimes after a fight with his neighbors.
The man is accused of pouring a beer over the head of his neighbor, and then calling her husband an “Arab terrorist.” He is also accused of punching the man in the face.
But his lawyer claims that the police arrested the wrong man. He says the neighbor started the fight by calling his client a racial slur.
The fight broke out Sunday evening. The neighbor and his wife are from Turkey; it’s not clear if they are Muslim.
He has been ordered to stay away from his neighbors.
