It’s always nice to see people acting like jerks on the road get immediate comeuppance, especially when it’s a cop breaking the law. This video of an NYPD cop wiping out on a dirt bike in Harlem is extremely satisfying, especially for the onlookers who cheered once the officer hit the pavement.
A police source told the Post that the cops found the bike abandoned at an intersection, but that sounds like bullshit. The number of cops wandering around in the background, plus the fact that cruisers are parked across traffic, suggests to me this was part of a larger operation, perhaps an NYPD checkpoint to seize illegal motorcycles or dirt bikes. However, the source did tell the Post that the cop was riding it back to the precinct.
This isn’t the first time an NYPD cop has been caught on film crashing a seized bike. Just last month, a cop wiped out riding an illegal e-bike.
