An NYPD officer was caught on camera popping a wheelie on a dirt bike before he is seen crashing and burning in the middle of a New York City intersection, the video shows.
Police tell the New York Post that it happened Sunday at around 6 p.m. at the corner of Lenox Avenue and 135th Street in Harlem. The video shows the cop wiping out and crashing hard onto the pavement. Police told the Post he suffered a leg injury and he was treated for minor injuries at an area hospital.
The NYPD told News 4 that they are “aware of the incident and it is under internal review,” and added that no arrests were made.
The Post reports, citing a police source, that a man had been riding the dirt bike recklessly through traffic before it was ditched. The officer was riding it back to a nearby precinct station when he made the tumble, the Post reports.
