RYE - Steven Caspi sat in the parking lot of Rye Middle School early on Dec. 12, 2004, waiting for his teenage son. When he saw the flashing lights of police cars on Boston Post Road, he hoped nothing had happened to Andrew.
A short while later, a sergeant came by and told him to go to police headquarters. There, Caspi caught a glimpse of his son but mostly remembers hearing him.
"He was really quite hysterical. He was screaming, 'You can't do that. It's police brutality,' Steven Caspi recalled. "And then I saw him. His face looked like Rocky in the 10th round. I was appalled."
Andrew Caspi was arrested that morning, accused of scuffling with police as they tried to detain him. The 17-year-old's face was bloodied, he suffered a broken bone under his left eye, his collarbone was injured, and some teeth were loosened.
