78th Precinct

Park Slope

Road rage

A New Jersey motorist went ballistic on another driver who honked at him on Carlton Avenue on Jan. 23.

The victim told police he was in his car between Pacific and Dean streets at 10 pm when he noticed the driver in front of him stopped at a green light and honked his horn.

But the other man didn’t take kindly to the courtesy honk and emerged from his car to attack the victim’s side-view mirror, causing $200 worth of damage, cops said.

Cracking up

Cops busted a 54-year-old woman after she allegedly stole $10 from a man on Park Place on Jan. 26, and was later found in possession of crack pipes.

The victim told police he was near Flatbush Avenue at 2:21 pm when the suspect asked him if he had a few $5 bills to exchange for some $1s.

The young man was happy to oblige and handed the woman two Lincolns, which she promptly stuck into her pockets and blithely walked away, cops said.

She didn’t get too far though, and police allegedly found her in possession of two pipes covered in crack residue later that day, according to authorities.

Flat-out drunk

Cops arrested a man who they say drove drunk on Flatbush Avenue on Jan. 26.

The arresting officer reported he was near the Prospect Park Zoo at 12:20 am when he allegedly spotted the suspect driving like a maniac, and disobeying traffic signs.

When he pulled the suspect to the curb, the patrolman says he reeked of booze, and tests later showed he had a blood-alcohol content of .101, well over the limit of .08, cops said.

Stairwell shenanigans

Cops cuffed a 21-year-old man for drinking beer and smoking weed in the stairwell of a Third Avenue apartment building on Jan. 23.

The arresting officer reported he was on the 15th floor of the building near Baltic Street at 4:20 pm when he spotted the suspect drinking a 20-ounce can of strawberry Budlight and smoking a joint.

Reasonable discourse

Benny from Park Slope says:
"drinking a 20-ounce can of strawberry Budlight" Drinking that swill should be a criminal offense anywhere, any time of day or night.
