Police Draw Guns after responding to reports of Snowball Fight in New Rochelle, NY

| January 31, 2015 | 0 Comments




NEW ROCHELLE, NY — Talk of the Sound has obtained copies of two video clips posted on social media that appear to show a New Rochelle Police office draw his firearm and aim to at a youth kneeling in the snow after police responded to calls of a disturbance which one witness described as a snow ball fight.

The first video picks up the action in the middle of things so it is not clear from the video what transpired beforehand. The video shows an NRPD officer using obscene language, ordering the already-kneeling youths to remain down. The officer is holding his firearm with both hands, pointed directly at one of the youths. He then approaches the young man, briefly frisks him with one hand while holding onto his firearm.

The second video clip shows police telling the youths to get up and move along.

New Rochelle City officials did not respond immediately to a request for comment.

Talk of the Sound is working to identify the exact details of the incident which reportedly occurred earlier this week.

– Wednesday, after New Rochelle received a heavy snowfall during Winter Storm Juno
– Location is in vicinity of Lincoln Avenue and Hemingway Avenue

New Rochelle Mayor Noam Bramson and Council Member Jared Rice have been raising the issue of police training in the context of the Eric Garner and Michael Brown grand jury decisions. Rice has asked that Police Commissioner Patrick Carroll consider issuing body cameras.

h/t the video was posted on social media by @WattsWorld, sent to Talk of the Sound by @_KingMalcolm
