Bronx teachers sue city, officers for unlawful arrest
? The New York Civil Liberties Union is helping two Bronx teachers file a lawsuit against the city and two officers for unlawful arrest.
The teachers say police officers arrived at the New School for Arts and Sciences in Longwood after a fight. The instructors say the officers turned on them when they questioned why the students were being handcuffed. They claim the officers verbally assaulted and arrested them.
The teachers are seeking monetary damages and better guidelines for police officers on school property. The police department maintains that officers have the right to arrest people who are disruptive.
