A disgraced former NYPD police officer who forced his way into a Black woman's apartment was ordered to pay her $1 million.
Michael Reynolds, who is white, was in a drunken stupor the night he forced his way into Conese Haliburton's apartment.
Haliburton filed a civil suit against Reynolds who quit the police force in shame earlier this year.
The incident happened on July 9, 2018. Reynolds, 27, had attended a bachelor party for a fellow NYPD officer when he was caught on surveillance video breaking into Haliburton's apartment at 2:30 a.m.
The footage captured him calling Haliburton and her family "f***ing ni__ers," according to MSNBC.
"I'll break every bone in your neck!" he yelled, before running back to his Airbnb rental.
Reynolds later confessed that he confused Haliburton's address with the Airbnb rental that he and his friends were staying at next door.
Haliburton said Reynolds and his friends were laughing and claiming they had "immunity" because of their jobs, according to reports.
Reynolds was sentenced to just 15 days in jail after pleading guilty to assault and trespassing charges in January.
He quit his job in disgrace earlier this year. "I'm absolutely sorry I said that word. I'm very remorseful. It's cost me my job, my life, everything," he said in court at the time.
Acting Deputy Commissioner for Public Information Devora Kaye told News 4 Reynolds will not "receive pension or health benefits, nor will he be allowed to carry a firearm."
"His actions are wholly inconsistent with the values and standards the New York City Police Department expects and demands of its officers."
