New York cops handcuff and interrogate boy, 7, for hours over 'stolen' $5... and now his family wants $250million

The mother of a 7-year-old boy in The Bronx, New York is suing the police for $250 million claiming they overreacted and treated her son like a hardened criminal after he was accused of stealing $5 from another student after school.

Instead of a simple trip to the principal’s office, Wilson Reyes was arrested in his third-grade classroom at Public School 114 on Cromwell Ave, handcuffed and held in a room for four hours.

Later he was hauled off to the 44th Precinct station house for another six hours of interrogation and verbal abuse, according to the $250 million claim against the city and the NYPD.
