Brooklyn Grandmother Arrested While Half-Naked By NYPD [VIDEO]


The NYPD has a problem. A Brooklyn grandmother was dragged out of her home and left partially nude in the hallway by a dozen cops as she was placed under arrest.

Reports the New York Daily News:

A Brooklyn grandmother who had just taken a shower was dragged from her apartment by about 12 cops who then stood by for more than two minutes while she was naked in the hallway, according to video that emerged Friday.

Denise Stewart was in her Brownsville apartment on July 13 when police — responding to a domestic disturbance call at the building — pounded on her door at 11:45 p.m. and demanded entry.

Stewart, 48, cracked the door wearing only a towel wrapped around her body and underpants — and was yanked into the hallway by cops over the screams of her family and neighbors.

Neighbors whipped out their cell phones and videotaped the arrests. To say that the scene was chaotic is an understatement.

“Yo, her mother got asthma …y’all wicked, y’all f—— wicked,” shouted one woman.

“Her asthma! Her asthma! Her asthma,” screamed another woman.

For approximately two minutes and 20 seconds, Stewart was bare-breasted in the hallway as additional police officers tramped up the stairs and through the hallway, glancing at her as they passed by.

When cops hauled Stewart’s two sons and two daughters out of the apartment and cuffed them, a female cop finally draped a white towel over Stewart’s exposed torso.

The details of what led to this incident are bizarre. Reportedly, police got a 911 call from the building, but they were not given a specific apartment number. Officers allegedly heard shouting from Stewart’s apartment, then banged on her door, demanding entry.

That’s when Stewart cracked the door, only wearing a towel wrapped around her body and underpants, and reportedly told officers they had the wrong apartment. Cops say they noticed that Stewart’s 12-year-old had visible injuries to her face, and when questioned she told officers she was beaten by her mother and older sister with a belt.

According to the police, family members tried to prevent the cops from arresting Stewart, and in the ensuing struggle she allegedly bit an officer’s finger.

Just about everyone in the apartment was charged, except for a 4-year-old, that allegedly got pepper sprayed.

Denise Stewart was charged with assaulting a police officer, and — along with her oldest daughter, Diamond Stewart, 20, — resisting arrest, acting in a manner injurious to a child and criminal possession of a weapon.

Stewart’s son Kirkland Stewart, 24, was charged with resisting arrest. The 12-year-old was charged with assaulting a police officer, criminal mischief and criminal possession of a weapon.

The NYPD is already under scrutiny for the death of Eric Garner—which has been deemed a homicide—after he was placed in a chokehold by an officer in July. While there are plenty of cops that actually serve and protect, an incident like this only bolsters the feelings of many that cops are inept and quick to make situations worse than they already are, sometimes to deadly affect.

    I can’t with these people. I’m trying to be partial but honestly don’t these folks read the news? These cops are murking people why not cooperate and get dressed before opening the door?. One of those temperamental cops could have just snapped,choked out or stomped that grandma. Hell the way this family was clowning was crazy! All that yelling and screaming I find it hard to be empathetic.

    Sorry but at the end of the day the cops are the ones with the guns so I am cooperating at that point. All of that fuss about innocence will take place at your trial. Not saying that Eric Gardner deserved what he got cause that was definitely a case of extreme force by the police. All I am saying is that cops have the power to kill and not cooperating usually doesn’t end well.

    • DRUNK247

      Soft as fuq

    • Verbal Kent

      #truth, But what does that situation have to do with this situation?

    • Vick Rose

      you do not know your rights

      • GeminiSun

        Apparently I do I am not saying let a police officer disrespect you in any way. I am just saying that when you resist arrest by yelling and getting aggressive it may cause them to use MORE force in order to restrain you. That’s all I am saying sir lol

      • Mocha23

        You ain’t crazy the “tough” people who ALWAYS resisting and yelling and screaming at the psycho cops always end up getting they arse stomped by them. Now I’m going to bed!

    Ya’ll better recognize that the US is gradually turning into a police state. Minor incidents and the police come with massive amount of cops and firepower. They no longer attempted to mask their wrong, even in the age of the Internet, because they know that nothing is going to happen to them.

  • A real one

    She should not have opened the door and requested a warrant. The police are not allowed to enter into your house unless you invite them in, even if they have probable cause they still require a warrant!! Her first mistake was opening the door, but they still did not have a right to treat her like they did. She is someone’s sister, mother, grandmother, etc. Let the courts decide if she was wrong in her level of disciplining the child, that’s what they are there for!!

    • Mocha23

      Exactly! And don’t ever open the door with no lil towel on unless it’s your man! I’m going to bed now.

  • MsLittlejohn

    Speechless at this. All I kept hearing myself say while watching this is ‘cover her up!!!’. Their feelings would be hurt if someone did their Mother or daughter like this.

  • Landon
