BROOKLYN, N.Y. -- (WPIX) -- Errol Everett is angry and frightened over a violent encounter with NYPD caught on video.
"I'm scared, I feel like I have a target on my back now," Everett told PIX11 News.
The video shows Everett being pulled to the ground, apparently by an NYPD lieutenant. In the video, you can see the lieutenant's actions, punching Everett while other officers hold him down.
"It's traumatizing," he said. "No one should be subjected to that."
Everett, 33, claims this was unprovoked. He says that night about two weeks ago, he was attending a family function and tried to make a quick stop at a liquor store on Mother Gaston Boulevard in Brownsville at the same time officers were in front of the store dealing with another situation.
"I just told them I'm not here for no disrespect, it happened so fast," he said.
