Reader mail: Harrassed by cop
Last night, a Hoboken411 reader had a run-in with an aggressive driver who claimed to be a cop. Here’s her story:
“At about 10:30pm Friday, I was walking home from an evening in NYC with my son and was crossing Willow Street and 5th. We were in the crosswalk trying to cross the street. This black Toyota sped up as we were trying to cross. In fear, I whacked his car window with my purse. He screeched his car to a stop and got out of his car very aggressively. He let fly the f-word, saying I hit him. “What are you going to f*ckin’ hit me? I told him that he was going to hit me.
He was short with olive skin and wavy black hair.
After he called me a bitch a few times and spewed the f-word several times in front of my son, this other gentleman who came up behind calmed the guy down. He appeared to know him. The guy yelling at me said he was a Hoboken cop. He flashed his badge, but when I wanted to look closer, he flipped it back and said it was good enough for me. I’m not sure if he’s a local cop or not. I calmly took out my camera and took a photo of his license plate. Does anyone out there know this clown?“
