NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – The NYPD is reportedly investigating the conduct of one of its officers after a protester was violently pushed to the ground during Friday night’s heated protest in Brooklyn over the death of George Floyd while in police custody in Minneapolis.

A video posted by the protester, identified as Dounya Zayer, shows her in front of the male officer on a street near the Barclays Center. He tells her to “get out of the street” and she asks “Why?” The video cuts off after that.
