EAST HARLEM —  This is not how you get out of a parking ticket.

A man ran over a police officer’s foot while attempting to dodge a parking summons, according to the NYPD.

Kareem Elmore, 35, was parked in front of 343 E. 116th St. about 6:30 p.m. Friday when the officer issued the summons.

Elmore reversed the car and then shifted into drive. The 50-year-old officer stood in front of the vehicle but that didn’t stop Elmore from driving into him, police said.

The officer foot swelled up and he was transported to New York Presbyterian.

Elmore was arrested and charged with assault and obstructing government administration. He was released on his own recognizance and is due in court Dec. 16, records show.

His attorney did not immediately respond to questions about the case.
