He was suspended without pay last week after the footage of the encounter went viral.

Police union sources told NBC News that the officer is expected to be charged with misdemeanor assault as soon as Tuesday.

The Brooklyn District Attorney's Office has not yet commented on any pending charges. They say the investigation is still ongoing.

The woman tweeted after the incident that she was hospitalized with a concussion after being shoved by the officer.

Zayer claims the officers asked her to get out of the way and she was moving backwards and asking why when the officer lunged at her.

The officer allegedly called her a "stupid f***ing b***h" before pushing her.
