NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Police Department says it will review an incident in which four plainclothes officers and a lieutenant handcuffed a postal worker.
The March 17 confrontation involving postal worker Glenn Grays was captured on cellphone videos that have been widely shared. The videos show the officers telling Grays to stop resisting even though he does not appear to be resisting.

Grays said at a news conference this week he was driving his mail truck in Brooklyn when an unmarked police car nearly hit him. He says he shouted something out of his window and the officers stopped and demanded identification.
Grays ended up handcuffed and placed in the back of the unmarked police car.
Democratic Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams says Grays was “traumatized” by the confrontation.
