Police officers sued for pepper-spraying 5-month-old baby Published: April 2, 2013

The New York City Police Department is being sued by a woman who says officers pepper-sprayed her entire family, including a 2-year-old and 5-month-old baby, according to The Raw Story.

In a lawsuit obtained by Courthouse News Service Monday, the woman accuses three officers of overacting when they saw her pushing the stroller through a service entrance instead of going through the subway turnstile, Raw Story reports.

“The pepper-spray caused the children to scream out and choked the two-year-old, who went into fits of vomiting,” according to the lawsuit.
