A New York City cop was shoved by a suspect who fled the scene of a bust on a busy street in broad daylight this week, according to reports.
The wild incident unfolded on Wednesday afternoon on E 59th St. near Central Park in Manhattan.
NYPD officers approached a red sedan with guns drawn and ordered the occupants to step out of the vehicle, as video footage shows.
“Show your hands. Get out of the car,” officers can be heard shouting as the suspects are pulled from the car.
As two cops handle the passengers, a third attempts to apprehend the driver, who appears to resist.
The officer attempts to pin the man to the read of the vehicle, but he suddenly spins away before shoving the cop and sprinting away.
“We got one perp running,” an officer can be heard saying as the other occupants are handcuffed.
The suspect who ran away was later arrested, according to the New York Post.
The NYPD has launched an investigation into the incident.
