Early this morning, a driver in Brooklyn refused to pull over for an NYPD sergeant and instead dragged the sergeant with their car. The incident occurred as the sergeant was attempting to stop the driver.
According to law enforcement officials, a disturbance at the intersection of Bedford Avenue and Snyder Avenue prompted a response from two officers at 3:51 a.m. The officers were informed by a witness that an individual in a black Hyundai sedan had brandished a firearm towards them.
According to the NYPD, law enforcement officials tried to stop a car, but the driver attempted to flee. During the altercation, the sergeant had his firearm drawn and his arm became caught in the windshield, resulting in a brief dragging. Unfortunately, due to the force of the drag, the sergeant unintentionally discharged his firearm, which struck the ground.
After the incident, the sergeant was immediately transported to a nearby hospital for a thorough evaluation of his shoulder injury.
As of now, there have been no individuals detained in connection with the incident.
