The Brooklyn District Attorney's Office says charges are being dismissed against a homeless man arrested after a beating from police officers that was caught on video.

District Attorney Charles Hynes on Monday said he has decided to drop the charges against 21-year-old Ehud Halevy "after review of all available evidence."

Halevy was arrested Oct. 8 inside a Jewish community center in Brooklyn, on charges including assault, resisting arrest and trespassing.

A security video showed two officers confronting Halevy and trying to handcuff him. When he pushes one of the officers away, one of the officers starts to pummel him. The other appears to hit him with a baton.

The officers are under investigation by the NYPD's internal affairs unit and the district attorney's office.
