New York: NYPD officer struck by SUV while breaking up fight under FDR Drive

Sunday, July 16, 2017

A police officer was struck by SUV after trying to break up a fight in Manhattan early Sunday, the NYPD said.

Police were called to a large group of men fighting on FDR Drive and 23rd Street just after 3 a.m.

Arriving officers found a large crowd departing from a party boat when a black Ford Explorer fled a parking garage adjacent to the dock, went through the barricade and struck a responding officer, police said. The injured cop then fired a single shot, but no one was hurt.

The vehicle was stopped a short distance away. Three men, ages 29, 40 and 41, were taken in custody, police said.

The wounded cop was treated for a minor injury at a hospital but was released, police said.
