Westbury cabdriver sues over robbery charge

Westbury cabdriver Mevyo Jean talks Thursday, March 13, 2014, about his federal lawsuit that names an unidentified Nassau County police chief, the district attorney and a group of LIU Post lacrosse players. Jean claims his civil rights were violated after an arrest and prosecution involving a $28 cab fare last year. Jean’s lawyer says drunken lacrosse players skipped out on the fare and used a connection to a police chief to avoid arrest and have the driver falsely charged with robbery. (Credit: Howard Schnapp)
