Borough Park - $75,000 to a Hasidic man who claims an NYPD cop tore off parts of his beard

The city has agreed to pay $75,000 to a Hasidic man who claims an NYPD cop tore off parts of his beard during a Brooklyn melee in 2006, sources told The Post.

Chaim Appel, 41, had sued over the April 4, 2006, brawl in Borough Park, alleging he was beaten, thrown against the hood of a car, then cuffed and taken away while his 9-year-old son looked on.

Charges against him were dropped.

"It makes it easy for me to sleep at night, knowing that other people finally know the truth of what happened over there," said Appel, a paralegal.

"I was just totally in the wrong place at the wrong time."

The brawl started when officers got stuck behind a double-parked car and arrested the driver for speaking on a cellphone.
