Driver Reverses Over Police Officer in New York

A police officer was run over during a traffic stop in Brooklyn, New York, on April 23, the NYPD said.

Police said the lieutenant from the 71st Precinct asked the driver to step out of the vehicle after determining he was unfit to drive.

“That’s when he put the car in reverse, running over the lieutenant,” the NYPD said in a tweet.
