NEW YORK CITY — An off-duty NYPD traffic agent enraged by a fellow officer ticketing him for being in a no parking zone was busted after cursing out the agent and then speeding through a red light in an attempt to escape, prosecutors say.
Oluwatoyin Laoye, 36, flew into a rage when he spotted a fellow traffic cop ticketing his 2008 Honda Accord, which was parked in a no standing zone in East New York at 10:42 p.m. Thursday night, according to the NYPD and his criminal complaint.
"What the f--k are you doing? You are going to have to get rid of it you better not put that f---ing ticket on my car," Laoye shouted before tossing the citation back in the agent's face, according to the criminal complaint.
When the agent placed the summons on the Honda, Laoye hopped behind the wheel of his Honda and tossed the ticket back in the agent's face, prompting the agent to ask for Laoye's license.
"I ain't showing you s--t. F--k you and your sergeant," Laoye replied before speeding off and blowing through a red light, prosecutors said.
The agent cut Laoye off about two blocks later and handcuffed him, prosecutors said.
Laoye was been charged with reckless endangerment, obstructing governmental administration, reckless driving, and traffic device violation, police said.
