The man, whose name and age were not released, was caught selling the fruity hooch near Utica and Maple avenues about 7:30 p.m., an NYPD spokesman said Tuesday afternoon.
As officers took him into custody, he kicked one of them in the groin, the spokesman said.
A crowd began to gather around and disrupt the arrest, so the first officers called in backup, police said.
The man also struggled with officers as they tried to place him in an NYPD vehicle, police said.
Police also arrested six other people from the disruptive crowd, an NYPD spokesman said.
The seven people were all awaiting formal charges Tuesday afternoon, police said.
The officer who was kicked didn't require medical attention, police said.
