Ex-Pa. police captain settles case from NY protest

Former Capt. Ray Lewis acknowledges he disregarded police orders not to block a street during a protest in November

Associated Press

NEW YORK — A retired Philadelphia police captain arrested during a Wall Street protest in New York City is set to resolve his case without jail time or probation.

Former Capt. Ray Lewis took Manhattan prosecutors' offer Wednesday to get the disorderly conduct case closed if he avoids re-arrest for six months.

Lewis acknowledges he disregarded police orders not to block a street during a protest in November. He says he was trying to make a point about holding corporations responsible for their roles in the financial crisis.

Lewis retired from the Philadelphia force in 2004 and moved to upstate New York. He was arrested wearing his full dress uniform, prompting warnings from Philadelphia police and union officials.

Lewis says he broke no law by wearing the uniform.
