(PIX11)-- Former NYPD detective Harold Thomas was stopped by police for a DWI after leaving La Marina in Washington Heights.
He was questioned and asked for ID, he says he showed his ID multiple times and ended up being beaten by several officers, but the officers on the scene said he did not and he instigated the altercation.
He was suspended for 22 days and eventually took it to trial.
He was found guilty of some charges but not others and continued to work.
Thomas will be here to tell his side of the story.
