Cop Whose Foot Was Run Over By Ferrari Arrested For DWI

NEW YORK CITY — A police officer who previously sued the boyfriend of a The Hills star for running over his foot was arrested on Saturday for driving while intoxicated, police said.

Felix Recio, 32, was arrested on Saturday morning for driving drunk in Queens, police said.

Recio was off duty at the time of the arrest, police said.

In August, Recio filed a lawsuit against Julien Chabbott, 28, a Vassar College grad and boyfriend of Hills star Stephanie Pratt, after a video surfaced of Chabbott running over Recio's foot.

Felony charges against Chabbott were dropped in October, and he now faces two misdeameanor charges, according to the Daily News.

Recio sued Chabbott for $10 million in August, according to a report in the Post. The status of that case was not immediately clear.

The incident was the first of two DWI arrests against NYPD officers in the last three days.

Early Monday morning, off-duty officer and former marine Ismile Althaibani, 29, was arrested after allegedly driving drunk and getting involved in a car accident in Queens, according to police.

Althaibani refused to take a breath test after being taken to an undisclosed hospital, police said.
