A top aide to Mayor Eric Adams has been hit with a third lawsuit, this one claiming that he “liked to brag about his power and his ability to punish NYPD officers.”

The lawsuit filed by NYPD Lt. George Huang on Thursday at the state Supreme Court in Manhattan claimed aide Tim Pearson would regale staffers with stories of how he “took care of” cops who crossed him.

“Each of defendant Pearson’s stories were meant to intimidate the staff and communicate how powerful he was,” according to the court filing, which accuses the city of allowing retaliation and a hostile work environment against Huang.

The lawsuit also named NYPD’s Chief of Department Jeffrey Maddrey and Deputy Inspector at Internal Affairs Bureau Joseph Profeta as defendants.
