What a drag
Police say a 33-year-old man caused another man to crash his car — after he challenged him to a drag race on Utica Avenue on May 27.
The victim told police that he was driving along near Avenue L at around 3:20 am when the suspect, driving a 2007 Grand Cherokee, pulled up alongside him and challenged him to a drag race.
The victim refused, but the suspect allegedly kept pace beside the victim as he drove to his destination, eventually causing him to collide with another vehicle, cops said.
A 48-year-old woman was arrested for attacking man with a baseball bat on E. 70th Street early on May 26.
The victim told police that he was between Avenues N and T at around 7 am when the suspect told him, “I feel like cracking you in the head,” and then smacked him several times with a baseball bat.
