After Cops Tasered & Beat Him, 86-Year-Old Brooklyn Man Cleared of Charges of Making Soup

See video at NBC.
A judge dismissed criminal charges Monday against an 86-year-old Brooklyn man who was Tasered in his kitchen by NYPD cops who were supposed to be looking for a man in his 20s....

John Antoine was making soup and chopping an onion when cops burst into his Bedford Stuyvesant apartment last October and zapped him twice, the Daily News reports.

NBC reports that Antoine was also kicked in the stomach by the cops.

Antoine was charged with “harassment" for holding a knife while making soup, according to Rolling Out.

His lawyer, who thanks God his client didn't have a heart attack, says the city is looking at a $5 million lawsuit.
