Conclusion Meanings:

'Exonerated': or 'Within NYPD Guidelines' - the alleged conduct occurred but did not violate the NYPD's own rules, which often give officers significant discretion.
'Substantiated': The alleged conduct occurred and it violated the rules. The NYPD has discretion over what, if any, discipline is imposed.
'Unfounded': Evidence suggests that the event or alleged conduct did not occur.
'Unsubstantiated': or 'Unable to Determine' - CCRB has fully investigated but could not affirmatively conclude both that the conduct occurred and that it broke the rules.

Sylvester, Ronald vs City of New York, et al.
Case # 18CV06023, U.S. District Court - Eastern District NY, November 5, 2018, ended May 2, 2019
$15,000 Settlement
Complaint
Description: On November 21, 2017, plaintiff was walking alone on the sidewalk when defendant P.O. Adair approached him, pushed him and told him to walk the other way. Plaintiff asked the officer not to touch him as he had recently had surgery and continued walking. P.O. Adair tackled plaintiff from behind, causing him to fall to the ground. Other officers then grabbed plaintiff by his right arm and one punched plaintiff in his head. Plaintiff was then handcuffed too tightly and transported first to the precinct and later Central Booking where he was falsely charged with resisting arrest. All charges were ultimately dismissed.
