Bronx detective sued over a dozen times...

Bronx detective sued over a dozen times for allegedly intimidating teens and their moms during false arrests

He's accused of terrorizing teens — and their mothers.

A Bronx detective, stripped of his badge and gun, has been sued more than a dozen times over the past decade.

In one lawsuit, a Bronx mom accused the detective, David Terrell, of body-slamming her after she pleaded for him and other officers to stop beating her son. In another lawsuit, Terrell is accused of promising to protect a Bronx mom’s son if she gave in to his sexual advances.

Charmaine Dixon, 43, was one of the first to sue Terrell over a false arrest, when he held the rank of officer in the 42nd Precinct.

In 2011, Dixon and her then-6-year-old daughter went to the Morrisania precinct stationhouse after she heard Terrell had arrested her 16-year-old son, Tamel, at his school. She said in her lawsuit, filed in Manhattan Federal Court, that when she approached the police station she could hear her son screaming.

“By the time I got over there, I heard my son yelling in the bullpen, ‘Ma, help me, Ma, help me!’ ” Dixon said.

When she looked through a window, she saw her son handcuffed with officers beating and pepper-spraying him, according to the lawsuit.

Terrell and four officers came outside the stationhouse. They began following the mom as she tried to walk away with her daughter. That’s when Terrell bear-hugged her and threw her to the sidewalk, permanently injuring her shoulder, neck and back, Dixon claimed in the lawsuit.
