Roughed Up at the Opera and Fighting Back

"A classical pianist turned real estate agent says New York police roughed her up, caused a concussion and wrongfully arrested her after she was thrown out of the Metropolitan Opera in a ticket mix-up. Aviva Aronovich sued the city and police officers Wednesday over the March 2010 incident. The police department says she became belligerent and was taken to a hospital for psychiatric evaluation. Aronovich's lawsuit says she had a ticket to the premiere of Hamlet but was ushered out after she handed her ticket to a friend and couldn't immediately show it." [Source]
