The video going around social shows a man escaping with his vehicle as it’s about to get towed.
The incident took place in Boro Park on Thursday where a NYPD Traffic agent ticketed the man’s minivan vehicle for parking too close to a fire hydrant. The officer then began the process of towing the vehicle but the car’s owner shows up and successfully drives off.
After the man drove off, a crowd which began to gather at the scene and harass the officer, telling him he should work at Harlem and that the footage, which they claimed would depict the cop in the wrong, would go on YouTube.
“This is my place, this is not your place,” one man yelled.
“What a loser, what a loser,” screamed another.
A request to the NYPD for comment has not been responded to.
