How about we start the week off with a douche getting slammed to the ground by cops?
A NYPD officer was doing his job and writing up a parking ticket for a violating Ferrari 458. When the driver of the 458 noticed he was getting a ticket, he decided to hop in his car and move it before the cop placed the ticket on his windshield. The only obstacle that was in the 458′s way was a police officer.
Even though the police officer was standing in the way of the 458, the driver slowly started to nudge forward, ever so slightly. Noticing the driver was edging forward, the police officer insisted that he stop, multiple times. The driver did not listen to the police officer and his 458 ended up on top of the the officer’s foot. Rightfully pissed off, the officer punch the car door, yanked open the car door open, and snatched the driver out of the car. The driver was then slammed to the ground and handcuffed. This is what the YouTube user who uploaded the video had to say about the situation:
I was walking around Soho, NYC today when I stumbled upon this Ferrari 458 Spider with a cop writing a ticket next to it. I started to record the situation because I thought it’d make a cool video, little did I know what I was in for. As soon as I started recording the owner of the car appeared and got in it. He slowly started moving since he refused to accept the ticket (the car was parked in a hotels valet zone and the hotel valet had the keys, I myself don’t understand why the cop was giving him the ticket, it was approved by the hotel that the car was parked there.) The cop then told him to stop but he proceeded to move forward. Now at this point I believe the cops foot was under the front drivers side tire. Yet again the owner moved the car forward and apparently he somewhat ran over the cops foot (or at least that’s what can be made out from everything in the video, others at the scene claimed otherwise.) This triggered the cop and he slammed his hand into the drivers window and proceed to open the door (notice how many times he bumped it into the taxi cab) and pull the driver out forcefully. The driver was then thrown on the ground and handcuffed and arrested. The owners girlfriend seen in the video is also Stephanie Pratt from the MTV hit show, The Hills. The car did suffer some damage, paint chips on the door from when the cop slammed it into the cab and some scuffs by the engine bay shown in the last scene of this video. Pretty crazy situation, I was definitely at the right place at the right time!
I did find it odd that the officer pulled his foot out so easily considering it was underneath a car.
Do you think the police officer in the right? Leave your comments below.
