Randy Credico, the challenger to Governor Andrew Cuomo in New York’s upcoming primary election, was arrested, handcuffed and jailed Thursday for video recording two plainclothes police officers aggressively arresting a man – only days after the NYPD issued a memo to officers stating recording is allowed.
Credico began recording video on his cell phone after witnessing two men without badges aggressively stopping an older black man at the Van Cortland Park subway station in the Bronx. Credico, who has spoken out against New York City’s “stop-and-frisk” policy, was on his way to a campaign interview when he saw the older gentleman being arrested.
“The guy got right into my face, and says, you’ve got to move back,” Credico told radio host Fred Dicker, while in a holding cell in the Bronx. “The next thing you know I got arrested.”
