Man Arrested After Beef With Starbucks Barrista in Tuckahoe Sues in SDNY

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 18 – A 33-year old man from California who was arrested by police in Tuckahoe, New York after a verbal disagreement with employees in a Starbuck there over a coffee order has sued Tuckahoe for Constitutional violations.

The complaint, filed on Martin Luther King's Day in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, says that TPD officers Peter Costa and Lieutenant Lawrence Rotta first ordered Richard Seemer to step out of the Starbucks - then surrounded and intimidated him.  

 Seemed "retreated in the direction of his mother's house" but the TPD officers followed him "threatening to shoot or tase him in the back."

He was arrested, but the charges were dropped. So he has sued. 

 The case is Seemer v. Village of Tuckahoe, et al., 21-cv-419 (Unassigned)
