NYC Man Mows Down Traffic Cop to Avoid Parking Ticket


man-crashes-into-copA man was so desperate to avoid a parking ticket that he ran over an NYPD traffic cop before she could write it, breaking her legs and causing a head injury. The incident happened Friday afternoon on Jerome Avenue in the Bronx. Cops tracked down the suspect, 26-year-old Anthony Grullon, and arrested him yesterday afternoon. The 26-year-old agent was about to write a ticket for a double-parked car when Grullon allegedly ran to the vehicle, got in and tried to drive away, police said.

As he made his escape, the car knocked the agent to the ground and then drove over her, crushing her legs.

The traffic agent is in guarded condition at St. Barnabas Hospital, police said.

Surveillance video captures the man believed to be Grullon wearing a red shirt and dark pants running across the street to his 2002 black Ford Taurus. The Bronx man has been charged with felony assault and leaving the scene of an accident.

  1. A woman is seriously injured and about this you make jokes? If the officer were Jewish (and how do you know she isn’t?) wouldn’t you have different take on it?

  2. To Rachel R: They are the scum of the earth! They only bring Tzar to people! These low lifes know well & good what the “job” entails!
