A drunk off-duty Muslim police officer slammed into a parked car before escaping the scene and punching a haredi Jew, the NY Post reported.
The officer, 28-year-old Tanvir Ahmad, is an NYPD officer from District 67. He was arrested on Monday and charged for driving under the influence of alcohol, assault, refusing a breath test, and leaving the scene of an accident, the site said.
According to NYPD, a driver watching Ahmad's drunk driving parked his car and ordered Ahmad to exit his vehicle, before realizing that Ahmad was a police officer.
Upon exiting his vehicle, Ahmad punched the driver in the face before escaping the scene.
He was arrested half a mile down the road, the NY Post noted.
