An 84-year-old man arrested for jaywalking in Manhattan is due in court Wednesday.

Kang Wong was stopped by police in January after he crossed an Upper West Side street without the traffic signal.

He faces criminal charges and a traffic violation.

He speaks very little English and says officers knocked him down when he did not understand their instructions.

Wong has filed a $5 million lawsuit against the NYPD
