Taryn Manning, Orange is the New Black star, is suing New York City for a wrongful arrest back in 2014. The 37-year-old actress was arrested for violating a restraining order and making threats to her friend back then.
The ex-friend of Taryn Manning, Heller, said she received a text message stating, “I will kill you, bitch.” The Orange is the New Black star refused the acquisition and stated they were false.
The star did not only state that the acquisition was false; she also said that the fan was stalking her. Though she explained such, she was put in handcuffs and placed in a holding cell for three and half hours. Later, the arrest was voided, but Taryn Manning could not take this humiliation.
James Franzetti, the attorney of Taryn, said, “Ms. Manning should never have been arrested where the New York City Police Department received advance notice from the New York County District Attorney’s Office that Ms. Manning would not be prosecuted based on an allegation of the subject complainant.”
The attorney also stated, “It was also astonishing that the NYPD acted on an allegation of a complainant with a glaring prosecutorial (two prior arrests, charges including stalking and harassing Ms. Manning) and plea history.
“This petition is the first step in a claim for damages arising out of the patently false November 18, 2014 arrest of Taryn Manning.”
While Taryn Manning, Orange is the New Black actress, was jailed for 3 and half hours, the person behind the arrest was prosecuted later. She was jailed for six months for harassing Manning.
While it may seem that the equation is even, Taryn is not quite happy. She thinks that the arrest has made some damage, and she wants a compensation. The “Orange is the New Black” star is not ready to take it coolly. She expects her claims will be understood and that she will get some compensations.
