While sitting in a cell on Riker's Island, facing charges that he assaulted a police officer, Ehud Halevy worried that he had unknowingly struck one of the cops who arrested him during a fracas at a Crown Heights youth center on Oct. 8.
"I was surprised there were so many charges," he said on Wednesday. '[The public defender] said I could get up to seven years."
All charges have been dropped against a homeless man caught on tape being beaten by New York police Chabad youth center in Brooklyn.
Ehud Halevy, 21, was arrested Oct. 8 after the police beating on charges of assault, resisting arrest and trespassing.
The Brooklyn District Attorney's Office announced Monday afternoon that it would drop the charges against Halevy.
