NYPD arrest NY gubernatorial challenger for videoing street-arrest

Randy Credico is challenging Cuomo in the primary; so much for the NYPD's vaunted stop arresting photographers memo.

Credico was charged with menacing a police officer, obstructing government administration, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct. According to Credico’s friend, attorney Margaret Ratner Kunstler, the police tightened Randy’s handcuffs to the point where his hands went numb.
