Brooklyn dad of eight literally scared to death after arguing with cops
A healthy, 43-year-old Brooklyn father died of a heart attack when police burst into his home at 5 a.m. without a warrant looking for a stolen cell phone. His son “said police continued to search the apartment, checking under beds and piles of clothes — even as blood started coming from his father’s mouth.”
The victim was dead by the time medical help arrived. And the most absurd part? “Cops later found the woman’s cellphone in front of a nearby building on Rockaway Parkway using her Find My iPhone app.”
