    Police Officer Alain Scharbarger was killed when he was
    pushed off a stoop by a suspect he was attempting to arrest.

    Officer Scharbarger and other officers responded to a call of a
    domestic assault in the Boerum Hill section of Brooklyn. When
    they arrived, they were met by a female victim who told them
    she had been assaulted and that she had an order of
    protection again the suspect. Additionally, she told them that
    the suspect had run into his home.

    Three officers, including Officer Scharbarger, responded to the
    suspect's home. The father of the suspect initially told officers
    that his son was not home, but after additional questioning
    admitted that his son was inside the house. The officers
    entered the house and located the suspect. They removed
    him from the house onto a stoop in front, where the victim
    identified him.

    The officers began to place the suspect under arrest and had a
    handcuff on one wrist when a violent struggle ensued. The
    suspect pushed Officer Scharbarger backwards with both
    hands over a 21-inch railing, causing him to fall nine feet to
    the sidewalk below. Officer Scharbarger struck his head and
    fractured his neck.

    Officer Scharbarger was taken to Lutheran Medical Center
    where he died from his injuries.

    The suspect was arrested at the scene after being tasered by
    other officers.

    Officer Scharbarger had served with the New York City Police
    Department for 12 years and was assigned to the 84th
