Description: Plaintiff Randy Damas was parked outside of his residence, listening to music and talking with a friend (Sylvester Wright, sitting front passenger seat) when they noticed an unmarked vehicle drive around twice.

Officers ordered them out of the vehicle and Mr. Damas was pat-frisked had his pockets searched and his vehicle searched, repeatedly.

Eventually, Mr. Samas was taken to the 105th precinct where he was strip searched and taken to central booking.
