Cell phone video of the incident was posted on YouTube by Frank Harts.
It shows several girls confronting police last Friday on a subway platform in Harlem.
It happened after the girls were allegedly caught trying to jump the turnstiles.
Chaos erupted and a witness says the girls refused to cooperate with police, who appeared to be outnumbered until other officers arrived.
