Meryl Streeps & # 39; racist & # 39; Nephew is caught on camera beating the 18-year-old Hispanic student to a pulp


Shocking new security cameras have exposed the full extent of Meryl Streep's nephew Charles Harrison Streep, who assaulted a teenage boy on the road in East Hampton this summer.

In footage shot exclusively by DailyMail.com and shown here for the first time today, 31-year-old Streep is seen lifting 18-year-old David Peralta's limp body and knocking him to the ground, which Peralta said did resulted in the teenager suffering from a life-threatening brain injury.

Speaking exclusively to DailyMail.com after the incident, Peralta alleged the older man had thrown racist abuse at him when he threatened to knock him down and dismissed him as "only Spanish".

Peralta's parents are both from Ecuador, although he was born in America, where he lived all his life.

The altercation took place on August 24 after Streep failed to observe a stop sign that caused a near collision between Peralta's red Mustang and Streep's Audi convertible on the main street of the Hamptons town.

The two men exchanged words, but Peralta told DailyMail.com that it was until he discovered Streep had turned back in an illegal U-turn and followed Peralta into the Chase parking lot, where events escalated at an alarming rate.

Now DailyMail.com can show that the Chase Bank surveillance cameras captured the incident from two different angles.

Streep and Peralta exchange words before they both appear ready to leave. But instead of doing so, Streep pulls his car onto the property and can be seen getting out of the vehicle and stalking back to the younger man's car as Peralta gets out as well.

Peralta tries to put his hands up, but stumbles back when Streep seems to rush him.

Recalling that moment in last month's interview, Peralta told DailyMail.com, “He's coming up to me and pushing me. He said: "You are only Spanish, I will hit you to the ground …" (after that) I don't remember much because I passed out.

The video shows Peralta falling deep and bringing Streep down with a judo-style shoulder throw. But Streep, who outweighs Peralta by 50 pounds, quickly regains control of the situation.

In footage that is as disturbing as it is educational, Streep can be seen fixing Peralta in a choke hold. Then he pulls Peralta off the floor while the younger man hangs limp and unconscious, his feet scratching the asphalt. Streep then lifts Peralta's body up before throwing it back with some force.

When Peralta regained consciousness, he was injured and bloody on the ground and Streep was already returning to his own vehicle.

Streep was arrested three days later and charged with second degree felony and second degree strangulation before being released on $ 5,000 bail.

He pleaded not guilty on both counts and will be tried on November 5th.

Streep is also battling a civil lawsuit Peralta filed against him that faces potential medical bills of more than $ 100,000 and an uncertain recovery.

Because although the entire encounter lasted less than two minutes, the effects of the injuries Peralta sustained could last a lifetime.

Less than a few hours after the incident, Peralta, who had declined on-site medical care, was flown to Stony Brook Hospital in Southampton – the closest facility with Level 1 trauma capability.

Medical professionals had discovered a brain haemorrhage that needed surgery, and every second that passed was a second closer to irreparable brain damage or death.

Peralta was unable to start his sophomore year at New York's John Jay College of Criminal Justice as planned, and in truth there is no way of knowing when or if he will ever resume those studies.

At the moment, his life is consumed by drugs and painkillers, and instead of meeting friends, his diary is filled with appointments with specialists, check-ups, therapies, and CAT scans.

Peralta's attorney Edmond Chakmakian told DailyMail.com, “David will never be the same. This is an important event in his life.

“The level of violence is really shocking. If he takes this young man's limp body after choking him unconscious and hitting him on the floor, it only rises to the level of profanity in my view.

“And I think any sane, compassionate person with a heart just can't understand it. It's beyond claim. Maybe he believes that because of his bloodline, or his famous father or aunt, he can go with impunity. & # 39;

Streep's own father Dana, 67, is also an actor, albeit overshadowed by his more famous sibling, Charles & # 39; multi-Oscar-winning aunt.

In addition to their home in the Hamptons, the family owns a large Connecticut estate, and Charles, one of four siblings, had all the opportunities in life his parents could afford.

However, this is not the first time he has come to grips with the law, although it appears to be by far the most serious.

DailyMail.com court records show Streep was found guilty of disorderly behavior / physical abuse (fighting or violent behavior, use of obscene language or gestures) in a traffic obstruction-related incident in Pennsylvania in 2012.

Today Chakmakian is adamant: "The legal system, both criminal and civil, will show him that there are consequences for your actions."

When DailyMail.com reached out to the Streep family for comment on their sprawling East Hampton home, Charles & # 39; mother Mary opened the door.

She dismissed inquiries on the subject as "trashy", saying, "Every story has two sides," but declined to elaborate.

Peralta's part, he told DailyMail.com that he hoped for justice and recovery.

He said, “If you are famous or you have money, it doesn't mean you can treat other people the way you want.

“It's not how this world is supposed to be. We shouldn't treat ourselves like that.

& # 39; I want justice. I also want him to pay for what he did to me.

"And I know it will be difficult and it will take a long time, but I just want to recover from it."
