2021 Abuse of Authority

News report with video footage

On November 24, 2021, three boys were playing with a basketball in front of a store and dislodged a security camera. Kruythoff Forrester, whose family owned the store and who is a retired police officer who worked under Maddrey, chased and pointed a gun at the boys. One of the boys called 911 to report the incident. A responding officer arrested Forrester.[11]

Maddrey went to the jail and ordered the arrest be voided.[12]

Part of the incident was captured on multiple surveillance cameras. Responding officers' body-worn cameras and jail security cameras captured details of Forrester's arrest and release.

Response Timeline

The Internal Affairs Bureau investigation found no wrongdoing by Maddrey.[11]

A criminal investigation by the Brooklyn District Attorney's office found no laws had been broken.[12]

On April 14, 2023, the Civilian Complaint Review Board (CCRB) found that Maddrey abused his authority by working "to disregard the facts established" during the arrest and recommended that Maddrey be docked up to 10 days' pay for intervening in the arrest. The NYPD Commissioner agreed with the recommendation, but soon resigned after pushback from the Mayor.[12][11][13][14]

Maddrey rejected the punishment, and requested an administrative trial in front of a hearing officer, who would make a recommendation to the new Commissioner.[11]
