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.
One complaint was made by Stefon Luckey, who has a $5 million suit against Frascatore and several other cops, claiming he was beaten and pepper-sprayed after getting racially profiled outside a Queens deli in May 2013.
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.

Luckey’s lawyer, Philip Hines, said he was told Pierre was involved in the arrest, but was unsure if she was involved in the wallet incident. He said her arrest this week for credit card and identity theft “raises questions.”
