According to the Daily News, a three -hour-standoff broke out as heated residents marched to the stationhouse as cops shielded in riot gear after a drug bust conducted by members of the 113th Precinct at a housing project in Jamaica.

Witnesses that spoke to the News said police officers “pounded on” brothers Corey Crichlow, 33, and Raynard Fields, 27, outside the Baisley Park Houses around 7:45 p.m.

Nearly 50 angry residents protested the arrest by marching down to the police stationhouse located on Baisley Boulevard while knocking over garbage cans along the way, witnesses told the News.

The cops had been arresting Crichlow, after catching him with drugs, when his brother got in between causing a fight to break out. One officer was injured and taken to the hospital for neck and back injuries. The other cops, that met protesters in riot helmets and batons at the 113th Precinct, dodged items being thrown at them, according to the News.

An uncle of the brothers told the News that Crichlow was taken to a hospital with bumps and bruises after the quarrel with the officers.

No arrests were made at the stationhouse and charges against the brothers were pending, as reported by the Daly News.
