Last night, a police officer in Times Square noticed a livery cab picking up an illegal fare outside the Bubba Gump Shrimp restaurant. So he stopped the driver—but the driver didn't want to stick around. He stepped on the gas, with the cop holding onto the window.
A witness told the Daily News that the cop was dragged "for half a block. The cab stopped, looked around and kept going." The Post, which say the cop was also struck, spoke to a witness who said the driver" must have been going about 30 mph because his feet were dragging and picking up dust. Then [the cop] let go and did four or five barrel roles [sic]."
The cop suffered minor back injuries. Police are looking for the rogue driver.
