A Brooklyn cop was put on modified assignment Friday after allegedly stomping on a suspect’s head, authorities said.


NYPD Officer Joel Edouard, 36, had cowed Jahmil-El Cuffee on suspicion of marijuana possession on Malcolm X Blvd in Bedford-Stuyvesant at 8 p.m. Wednesday. He then booted the unarmed man as he lay helplessly on the ground.

Cops saw Cuffee, 32, roll a joint on the street and stopped him, police sources said.

An onlooker from the neighborhood recorded the gruesome incident on his phone.

“I got you on camera” the onlooker said.  Also, in the video, you can hear the suspect constantly screaming, “Help me.”

Cuffee was taken to a hospital with neck and head injuries and charged with resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and pot possession.

Furthermore, Edouard is the second NYPD cop in July to get modified assignment. He was placed on desk duty and ordered to surrender his gun and shield according to the Daily News.

Most recently, Daniel Pantaleo was also reassigned after putting Eric Garner, 43, of Staten Island in an illegal chokehold on July 17.
