$250M claim filed against NYC, police; family says 7-year-old was cuffed, interrogated over $5

A 7-year-old New York City boy's family has filed a $250 million claim against police and the city after saying he was handcuffed and falsely accused of stealing $5 from another student after school.

His mother, Frances Mendez, tells the New York Post (http://bit.ly/VpGdY9 ) Wilson Reyes was "interrogated" for 10 hours on Dec. 4.

Family attorney Jack Yankowitz filed the claim. He says Wilson was handcuffed and held in a room at P.S. X114 in the Bronx for four hours, then taken to a precinct house. He allegedly was held there for six hours and charged with robbery.

The Post says the city dropped the charge Dec. 26. A spokesman declined to comment.

School officials say it occurred off school grounds. Police had no immediate comment.
