MANHATTAN — An EMT who's reportedly a member of the Hells Angels was arrested for slashing the tires of a delivery truck Tuesday, officials said.
Christopher Felix, who the New York Post reported was part of the notorious biker gang, punctured the tires of a truck that had stopped outside 77 E. Third St., near First Avenue, as its driver made a delivery inside the building just next door to the motorcycle club's East Village hangout, according to police and prosecutors.
The driver, a 45-year-old woman, came outside to find Felix, who works as an EMT for the FDNY, crouching beside the front driver's side fire as a loud hiss came out, police said. He then stood up and walked away, police said.
Felix was arrested at work, charged with criminal mischief and released after his Thursday arraignment, officials said.
"A person got her tire punctured and for reasons that are unclear to me, the police elected to charge a man who has no prior criminal record of any kind and arrested him at his job," said Felix's attorney, Ron Kuby.
Kuby said he didn't know if his client was a member of the Hells Angels.
"I am not on the membership committee," he said.
The FDNY did not respond to a request for comment.
