bronx man sues the nypd after he was cuffed to his hospital bed for a week following a car accident

A man from the Bronx is suing the NYPD for $10 million claiming he was handcuffed to his hospital bed for a full week following a car accident in which he nearly ‘lost his life.’

Kevin Saulnier, 24, ended up crashing head-on with some off-duty cops.

His car was a write-off while Saulnier’s injuries were severe after a three-inch piece of metal protruding from his leg left him bleeding profusely.

He ended up needing surgery in order to place a plate and five metal screws into his leg. The off-duty officers were not injured in the April 2019 crash. 

While recovering from the accident and subsequent operation, Saulnier was cuffed to his bedside after his driving record showed that he had several unpaid parking tickets. 

‘This was a total abuse of power,’ Saulnier told The New York Post. ‘They treated me like I killed 20 people.’ 

The lawsuit alleges the officers at the scene were angry ‘because one of their own was in an accident with a civilian. With absolutely no regard for the obvious injuries he had suffered, Saulnier was cuffed by the NYPD, as he lay in agony on the stretcher once he arrived at the emergency room at Jacobi Hospital.’ 

The explosive suit goes further alleging the police officers ‘wanting to prolong Saulnier’s misery, intentionally delayed’ processing his arrest paperwork and refused to issue him a desk appearance ticket.

Saulnier who was left ‘in excruciating pain’ was then made to wait for another week while he was handcuffed to his bed by his wrist and ankle until he could be seen by a judge.

Through the lawsuit, as seen by The Post, Saulnier states that on his ‘first evening as a prisoner’ a sergeant from the NYPD tightened his cuffs.

All the while, a cop was stationed by his bedside for the entire week.  

‘I had a broken left leg, a shackled right leg and they handcuffed my left wrist. I said, ‘Why are you guys doing this to me?’ None of the cops had an answer,’ he said.

Saulnier was driving his Chevy Malibu to a shopping mall when he collided with an SUV.

His car careened and ‘tapped’ a third car containing the off-duty officers. 

Saulnier’s car ended up being pinned against the guard rail and he had to clamber out of the passenger side door. 

His leg was so badly damaged that he was unable to stand up.

‘I’m lying in the car and 10 cop cars are there in under three minutes. … They all walked by me. … The first person to come up to me was FDNY,’ he said. He alleges the cops ‘didn’t care about me at all.’

‘…and then they established that my license was suspended due to an unpaid parking ticket from 2017.’

‘This was a regular car accident,’ Taso Pardalis, Saulnier’s attorney said. ‘The kid had unpaid tickets and his license was suspended for that and the cops united to punish him.’   

Saulnier, a steel worker, is now suing the Department in what he sees as 'an abuse of power'

Saulnier is said to have paid an outstanding $303 ticket judgment against him the day following the accident.

Saulnier was arraigned on charges of reckless driving and aggravated unlicensed operator and violation of vehicle and traffic law to which he pleaded guilty and was served with a $75 fine. 

An NYPD spokeswoman said ‘Saulnier was driving in a fire lane at a high rate of speed. His claims have no merit and we look forward to defending against the baseless allegations,’ the NYPD wrote in a statement regarding the lawsuit.

Byron Bay model Ruby Matthews is booed for delaying Jetstar flight after leaving airport for oysters

byron bay model ruby matthews is booed for delaying jetstar flight after leaving airport for oysters

A Byron Bay model held up a delayed Jetstar flight as she indulged on oysters in a fancy restaurant – and then complained when she was heckled by frustrated passengers. 

Ruby Tuesday Matthews was supposed to be flying from Byron Bay to Sydney on Thursday afternoon but a technical issue caused the flight to be delayed. 

Jetstar asked travellers to stay at the airport while they flew an engineer over from the Gold Coast and told passengers the new departure time would likely be about 7.30pm.

Matthews and her travel companion decided to leave the airport to grab a bite to eat at a beachside restaurant as others ate at the airport. 

The mother-of-two later posted a video to Instagram showing her eating oysters with a friend, captioning the footage: ‘Flight delayed f*** my life’.

She kept frustrated passengers waiting on the tarmac, who heckled her as she boarded 30 minutes after the plane was due to take off. 

Video footage shows passengers shouting ‘how were the oysters’ and ‘what a day to be pretty’ as she entered the aircraft.

While most other travellers remained at the terminal and purchased food from the cafe at the airport, Ms Matthews and her travel companion decided to leave the airport to grab a bite to eat instead

While the pair were enjoying their meal, those at the airport were advised the engineer had arrived sooner than expected and the flight would be boarding at 6.20pm instead. 

But passengers were forced to sit on the tarmac as Jetstar tried to trace a group of missing passengers, including Matthews and her mate.  

It is understood an employee had to call her to advise her the plane was ready to depart and she needed to return to the airport as soon as possible. 

Half an hour later the two women finally returned to the airport and boarded the plane.  

As they got on the plane passengers began heckling the women.

‘How were the oysters?’ one woman yelled. 

‘It’s a good day to be pretty,’ another man said. 

When a passenger asked if the oysters were good, Matthews replied: ‘Yes they were’.

After arriving in Sydney and getting into her limousine, Ms Matthews took to Instagram to share her ordeal with her 210,000 followers

Once she was seated a few travellers lashed out at Ms Matthews for leaving the airport after they were told to stay.

She told them she never heard the announcement advising them not to leave. 

The social media star then argued with the other travellers, telling them it was an ‘innocent mistake’ and that they were being rude. 

The influencer later took to social media where she blamed Jetstar for the incident, claiming staff did nothing to help her. 

Ms Matthews was not the only passenger who had left the airport. 

Before another late passenger boarded the plane a flight attendant told travellers the other woman would be arriving shortly and asked that everyone remain quiet once she arrived. 

In her rant, she blamed Jetstar for what had happened and told the other passengers to 'grow up'. 'I had a pretty traumatic flight experience, thanks Jetstar. you never cease to amaze me,' she began

As the final passenger boarded the plane the woman immediately turned to the frustrated full plane and apologised for being late. 

Ms Matthews appeared annoyed that the other woman had arrived ‘unscathed’. 

After arriving in Sydney and getting into her limousine, Ms Matthews took to Instagram to share her ordeal with her 210,000 followers. 

In her rant, she blamed Jetstar for what had happened and told the other passengers to ‘grow up’.

‘I had a pretty traumatic flight experience, thanks Jetstar, you never cease to amaze me,’ she began. 

‘I’m sorry but it really was not my fault…we were told it was going to be taking off at 7.45pm, I had not eaten since my smoothie that morning because I had been in back-to-back meetings.

‘I was like ”f*** this, I’m going to get food out of the airport, it’s two hours until our flight takes off, I’m going to go”.

‘I walked out, I did not hear the second announcement that apparently said ”do not leave the airport”.

‘I didn’t hear that, I swear to god, I wouldn’t have left the airport, I’m not a d***head, I do have respect for everyone else.’

She claimed she was met with ‘very personal comments’ when she got on the plane. 

‘I was basically bullied by about seven to 10 to 14 people at different times, then they made comments about my children. No Jetstar staff stopped this at any time. I copped it hard for about 15 minutes.

‘I was scared for myself because number one, I was by myself…number two, no one else who was later than me copped any abuse, it was just me alone.

‘I can handle it, I literally said ”guys, go for it, I cop this every single day, it’s just another fricken thing”. But one day, there is going to be another girl not as strong as me and they’re going to hop on that plane and they are going to cop that and they are going to hop off the other end and they are going to kill themselves.

‘Just be kind people, to the one guy who was kind to me, thank you. To everyone else, grow up.

‘I missed out on stuff too, I get it, but that was not my fault, it was a genuine mistake there is no reason to pick on me because I have influenza, I mean I’m an influencer.’

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Jetstar for comment. 

The social media star rose to fame by documenting her daily life. 

Among the bikini pictures and the sponsored posts on Instagram are pictures of her with her two children Rocket and Mars. 

Last year Ms Matthews revealed how she had relied on a cocktail of ‘cocaine, coffee and cigarettes’ to stay thin before giving birth. 

She claimed drug use was rife in the glamorous social media industry, revealing that most ‘influencers’ took cocaine to maintain their weight. 

‘I need to be careful what I’m saying here, but in the influencer industry, everyone loves the baggie,’ she wrote.

‘That is how most physiques are maintained.’

She told her followers she maintained her 54kg frame on a blend of cocaine, cigarettes and long black coffees.

She said her followers were often baffled about how she could eat so much and remain so thin.

‘A lot of people never really understood how I could eat and still be so thin, but I guess it’s pretty easy to hide an addiction,’ Ms Matthews said.

‘People don’t realise how easy it is to hide something. Whether it’s addiction, depression, anxiety, it’s easy to hide those things.’

The mother-of-two gave up cocaine three days after snorting the white powder at a party, when she learned she was pregnant.

She admitted she immediately became concerned her big night out might have hurt her unborn baby in some way.

‘I was so thin and I was partying a lot and no one thought I would be able to fall pregnant,’ she said.

Christine Holgate to be paid $110,000 a month as she is suspended as Australia Post CEO

Australia Post boss Christine Holgate will be receiving $110,000 a month as she is suspended over a $12,000 Cartier watch scandal.

Before the revelation about the lavish gifts of $3,000 for four senior executives, she was already Australia’s highest-paid government employee.

In 2019, she was on a base salary of $1.4million but with bonuses, her chief executive remuneration swelled to $2.565million.

During her suspension, on $110,000 a month, she will still be receiving the equivalent of $1.3million a year.

Ms Holgate, the UK-born former boss of complementary medicines company Blackmores, stressed no taxpayer funds were used because Australia Post is run like a private company.

‘I have not used taxpayers’ money. We are a commercial organisation,’ she told a Senate estimates hearing on Thursday.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison was furious at that response and ordered she be suspended pending an investigation, after she wore a $48,00 Bulgari watch at that parliamentary hearing in Canberra.

A federal government source described Ms Holgate’s defence to Nine newspapers as ‘an 11-word suicide note’.

Her future is in doubt after she gave her senior colleagues $3,000 Cartier watches in October 2018 as a reward for securing a $66million deal with three of the big four banks – Commonwealth Bank, NAB and Westpac. 

Australia Post is an independently-run government business enterprise that like a private sector company aims to make a profit.

While it isn’t directly funded by the taxpayers, Communications Minister Paul Fletcher and outgoing Finance Minister Mathias Cormann represent the government as its only shareholder, under the Australian Postal Corporation Act 1982.

Australia Post chairman Lucio Di Bartolomeohas confirmed her suspension, which will see chief financial officer Rodney Boys become acting CEO.

‘The Australia Post Board and management team will fully cooperate with the recently announced investigation to be conducted by shareholder departments,’ he said.

In a bizarre coincidence, the postal utility’s first female leader wore a stylish watch of her own as she was grilled over the scandal at Senate estimates on Thursday – a gold Bulgari timepiece that retails for $48,000.

Ms Holgate, who raised eyebrows last year when her husband bought her a Range Rover with ‘POSTY1’ number plates, was questioned by senators for four excruciating hours.  

And it took a fraction of that time for Mr Morrison to order her to stand down pending an investigation. 

Ms Holgate confirmed four of her highly-paid executives were handed Cartier watches during a cross-examination with Victorian Labor senator Kimberley Kitching. 

They were ‘awards’ for securing a deal with the Commonwealth Bank, Westpac and NAB, which paid a combined $66million to Australia Post so its customers could access banking services at its stores across the country. 

‘They got watches,’ Ms Holgate said as she was questioned by Senator Kitching.

‘They were a Cartier watch of about a value of $3,000 each.’ 

Senator Kitching replied: ‘Four people got Cartier. Do you remember the brand, the type? Was it a Cartier Tank? What was it?’ 

‘I don’t recall. I didn’t actually purchase them. They were organised through my office,’ Ms Holgate responded.   

Mr Morrison said the gifts were ‘disgraceful’ and ‘appalling’. 

‘She’s been instructed to stand aside and if she doesn’t do that, she can go,’ he told parliament on Thursday.

Senator Kitching: Four people got Cartier. Do you remember the brand, the type? Was it a Cartier Tank? What was it?

Ms Holgate: I don’t recall. I didn’t actually purchase them. They were organised through my office on behalf of the Chair and I.

Senator Kitching: OK so just to be clear, the four people who received Cartier watches were Mr Starr. You received one, Ms Holgate?

Ms Holgate: No, I did not.

Senator Kitching: Do you, Ms Holgate, consider it appropriate to use taxpayers’ money to buy Cartier watches for already highly-remunerated Australia Post executives?

Ms Holgate: I have not used taxpayers’ money. We are a commercial organisation. We do not receive government funding. We are a commercial organisation.

Senator Kitching: It is a government organisation.

Ms Holgate: It was a recommendation from our Chair that these people get rewarded.

As public anger over the revelations mounted online, a member of Australia Post’s social media team suggested in a since-deleted comment on the company’s Twitter account he was unhappy he hadn’t been rewarded for his hard work.

The comment came in response to a tweet saying front line employees had worked just as hard as the company’s executives.

‘Front line postal workers put in an inordinate amount of work, too. Where are their Cartier watches,’ one social media user wrote.

‘Don’t forget about the behind the scenes and customer support workers,’ Australia Post’s official account responded – signing off as ‘Liam’.

‘My wrist is light.’

Australia Post is a commercial business that does not get taxpayer funding – but its only shareholder is the Australian government which means its finances are scrutinised by members of Parliament. 

Mr Morrison said the government has launched a four-week investigation into the lavish gifts.

‘We are the shareholders of Australia Post on behalf of the Australian people,’ he said.

‘As any shareholder would in a company raise their outrage if they had seen that conduct, by a chief executive, management or the board, they would insist rightly on the same thing.’  

Communications Minister Paul Fletcher said boards and managers of government business enterprises needed to take great care with how they spend money.

‘I was as shocked and concerned as everybody else to discover this,’ he told parliament.

‘This is a matter which the Australian government take seriously.’

Union leaders slammed Australia Post’s leadership over the watches.

CPSU deputy national president Brooke Muscat said members had taken a pay freeze while working harder during the pandemic.

Ms Holgate said the watches were given as a reward to four executives who worked hard over a deal with Australia's big banks. Pictured: An Australia Post store in Sydney

‘How are they rewarded? Not with a watch or a bonus I can tell you that,’ she said.

‘Whether it’s watches in 2018 or big fat bonuses in the middle of a pandemic, the Australia Post board and its management are out of touch.’

Posties’ union national secretary Greg Rayner wants the entire board to be stood aside.

‘It’s outrageous that Australia Post’s CEO and board gifted $3000 watches to four senior, highly paid employees,’ he said.

‘But it’s not surprising given the other shocking decisions coming out of Australia Post’s leadership this year.’

Ms Holgate said the watches were given as an appropriate reward to four executives who worked hard over a deal with Australia’s big banks. 

Prime Minister Scott Morrison said the gifts were as unacceptable and ordered her to step down

‘They were a small number of senior people who’d put an inordinate amount of work in,’ she said.

‘They did receive an award on behalf of the chair, myself and the board.’

Senator Kitching grilled Mr Boys, who couldn’t say how the watches were paid for.

‘You spent $12,000 on watches and you can’t tell me what credit card you put it on?’ she said.

Mr Boys said Australia Post took great care over $7.4billion worth of expenses.

Ms Holgate did not receive a watch but a Cartier item went to senior executive Gary Starr, who also appeared before the committee and earned $809,648 during the past financial year.

Mr Starr was not wearing the watch and denied he had given it away as a gift.

Ms Holgate was born in Cheshire, England and moved to Australia to work for Telstra in 2003.

In 2008 she was made CEO of health supplements company Blackmores before landing the top job at Australia Post in 2017.

mum reveals how she transformed her foggy car headlights in seconds using a 5 supermarket product

An Australian woman has discovered how to de-fog car headlights in seconds and make them crystal clear again by using a $5 supermarket product.

Tammy shared before and after images to the Mums Who Clean Facebook group and revealed she used the Gumption Multi-Purpose Cleanser, which can be bought for $5.40 at Coles.

‘I was so sick of my headlights looking cr*ppy. So I tried using gumption on them and wow! They look almost new again!’ she said.

The abrasive but smooth paste product worked well at removing the ingrained stains easily.

Gumption has been made in Australia for over 60 years and is a great alternative to harsh chemicals or bleaches.

Others who have experienced the same car issue tried the product for themselves and said it was ‘great’ at restoring the lights to the original condition.

‘I would have never thought of that! What a great idea,’ one woman said.

‘I tried it on the weekend and it worked!!’ a second said.

‘They look great. Hubby says you need to spray a clear coat on top to seal it or it’ll just go back to cloudy,’ another suggested.

Some also recommended additional supermarket products that have also worked well to de-fog car lights.

‘Toothpaste works as well and everyone has that,’ one mum said.

‘We use Jiff on our cars, comes up just a great,’ another said.

A third added: ‘I clean mine with Windex each time after washing the car.’

‘I fixed the headlights on my car using a mix of toothpaste and baking powder and good old fashioned elbow grease! It worked really well and the headlights came up a treat,’ she wrote online.   

Leonie said she first used a paper towel to apply the mixture but then used her fingers to rub it in further.
