Brooklyn, NY - Man Arrested After Traffic Agent Claimed He Ran Over Her Foot
Brooklyn, NY - A motorist was busted after he allegedly ran over a traffic agent’s foot while trying to escape a ticket.
Abraham Elias, 22, was sitting behind the wheel of a 2007 Honda Accord at a bus stop outside his home on 15th Avenue near 46th Street shortly after 4 p.m. Thursday when a female traffic agent began to issue him a ticket.
He stepped on the gas, backing up over the agent’s foot, sources said.
She screamed, and he stopped and got out of the car - leaving the vehicle on her foot as they argued, sources said.
“I only stayed on your foot for an extra minute, because I thought you were going to give me a ticket,” he later told the agent, according to court papers.
Elias was arrested at the scene.
The agent was taken to Lutheran Medical Center, where she was treated for a fracture.
Elias was charged with assault and menacing, said a spokesman for DA Charles Hynes.
