A New York City police officer was caught on video driving erratically and crashing into another car before fleeing the scene.
The video, posted to Facebook shows NYPD officer Tanvir Ahmed, 28, weaving in and out of his lane before crashing into a parked car, then fleeing the scene as he’s pursued by the videographer.
Ahmed was charged with assault, driving while intoxicated, leaving the scene of an accident and refusal to take a breath test as cops will always do when pulled over while drunk.
According to The New York Post:
“An off-duty NYPD cop drunkenly crashed his car into another vehicle in Brooklyn — then punched the good Samaritan who tried to stop him from fleeing, police said Tuesday.
Officer Tanvir Ahmed, 28, who works out of the 67th Precinct in East Flatbush, was allegedly driving drunk just before 9:30 p.m. Monday.
Ahmed crashed his 2013 Nissan Altima into another vehicle at Avenue P and Ocean Parkway in Midwood, where he allegedly socked a man who tried stopping him from driving off, police said.
The cop fled the scene but was busted a half a mile away, near Quentin Road and Dahill Road, police said.”
