MANHATTAN — A city school teacher came unhinged when cops tried to cuff him for blocking traffic in the SoHo as he handed out Occupy Wall Street pamphlets — shoving a shopping cart at the officers, sources said.

David Suker, 43, who is assigned to Bronx Regional HS, was blocking traffic at Prince and Thompson streets at 4:40 p.m. Tuesday while giving out literature for the anti-corporate greed movement, according to the sources.

When cops tried to arrest him, Suker, of Sayville, LI, allegedly pushed a shopping cart at them, but none of the officers were injured.

Police said that Suker was charged with attempted assault, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and obstruction of governmental administration.
