Guy beats traffic cop over ticket

84th Precinct

Brooklyn Heights–DUMBO–Boerum Hill–Downtown

Road rage

An irate driver beat a traffic cop for writing a parking ticket on Remsen Street on Aug. 19.

The victim was writing up the ticket between 151 Remsen Street at 3:50 p.m., when the car’s owner spotted the officer and shouted, “You don’t respect the plaque,” before shoving him and punching him in the face, cops said.

The crook then hopped in his car and peeled off — on the sidewalk — nearly hitting several pedestrians in process, according to police.

Sharp crook

A knife-wielding wacko stabbed a man on Bond Street on Aug. 25.

The victim told police he was arguing with the suspect near Livingston Street at 10:23 p.m., when the nut pulled the knife and plunged into his gut.

Police found the victim highly uncooperative, saying the man refused to provide information on his attacker.

Commuter hell

Police arrested a man for allegedly beating and robbing a man inside the High Street subway station on Aug. 25.

The victim told police the suspect snatched the phone from his hand inside the station near Cadman Plaza East at 2:33 p.m., when he gave chase and ended up brawling with the man, who at one point hurled his phone to the ground, cracking the screen.

Police cuffed the suspect at the scene on a felony robbery charge, cops said.

Double dipping

A thief snatched a woman’s phone from her hand on Myrtle Avenue on Aug. 21.
The victim told police she was between 150 Myrtle Avenue at 11 p.m., when the crook snuck up and grabbed her iPhone X, before demanding $60 for its return.

The woman duly handed over the cash, only for the crook to take off with her money — and the phone.
