Chicago Tribune: Police Brutality Case

Four months later, Stefon Luckey claims Frascatore was among a group of officers who punched him, pepper-sprayed him and hurled racial epithets at him outside a Queens deli, the lawsuit said. Luckey’s lawyer, Philip Hines, said his client texted him after Frascatore’s name became public: “Everything done in the dark eventually comes to light.”

In another case the next year, Stefon Luckey said he was followed into a bodega by officers who arrested him and used pepper spray on him, according to a lawsuit. Then Mr. Luckey was handed to Officer Frascatore, who punched him and called him an epithet, his lawyer, Philip M. Hines, said. Mr. Luckey was released without being charged, his lawsuit said.

The CCRB dismissed Luckey’s complaint, but Luckey, who is black, maintains Frascatore punched him twice in the stomach and called him a “f-?-king n-?-?-?-r,” said his lawyer, Philip Hines.
