    Howrilka sued and filed a complaint alleging Urena improperly raffled off iPads and other costly prizes for kids. The claim prompted a DOE probe. Howrilka sent an e-mail asking about her treatment to Urena and Chancellor Carmen Fariña — and to some 40 other city and state education officials and city politicians. She got a call from the NYPD asking her to surrender on Urena’s charge of aggravated harassment. Howrilka spent seven hours in the 84th Precinct house before being moved to Brooklyn’s Central Booking.
