CROWN HEIGHTS — A man who scratched the sides of 16 cars, including 11 NYPD vehicles, and then bit a police officer's arm has been arrested and charged with multiple felonies this week, police said.

Terrell Dockery, 21, was seen by NYPD personnel scratching the sides of cars parked outside the 71st Precinct station house at New York Avenue and Empire Boulevard at 12:30 p.m. on Sunday, drawing “22GZ” on many of the vehicles, according to court documents.

Dockery damaged 16 cars in total, including 11 NYPD vehicles. At the time, he told officers the marks would wash off because it's "just chalk," court documents said, but the NYPD said the scratches made by an unknown object caused $250 or more in damage to each car.

After the incident, police took the 21-year-old — who appeared intoxicated at the time, sources said — to Kings County Hospital where he bit the arm of an officer charged with monitoring him, court records said.

He was arraigned on multiple assault, criminal mischief and graffiti charges on Tuesday and released from custody. He is due back in court on June 28, court records show.

His representative from the Legal Aid Society could not be reached for comment.

Dockery is also facing multiple assault charges stemming from a stabbing in East New York on Feb. 25, prosecutors said.

► A 16-year-old girl was attacked with pepper spray and bleach by a group of teens who threw the chemicals on her as she exited a bus on President Street and Franklin Avenue, police said. The teen left the bus at 3:30 p.m. on May 4 and was immediately approached by the group, who burned her with the spray and bleach. She was treated for burning and irritation at Kings County Hospital. No arrests have been made.
