The Manhattan district attorney announced the indictment Tuesday, in New York State Supreme Court, of New York City Police Officer Jonathan Munoz, accused of unlawfully arresting a man who attempted to videotape him after he illegally searched a woman last spring.


Munoz is also charged with falsifying documents with the NYPD and the district attorney’s office. “Had this officer’s attempts to conceal his alleged misconduct succeeded, an innocent man may still be facing charges for a fabricated crime,” DA Cyrus Vance said in a statement.


“Illegal searches and unlawful arrests go against the years of training each NYPD officer receives, erode the public’s confidence in law enforcement, and will be prosecuted by my Office’s Public Corruption Unit.”
