To Protect and Serve


New York City Police Officer Louis Ramos has been charged with assault, leaving the scene of an accident, and reckless driving after a hit and run involving his patrol car. Ramos drove through a red light with his lights and siren on and struck a bicyclist. He and his partner got out of their car, pulled the cyclist out of the street, handed him a tissue, and drove off without calling an ambulance or reporting the accident.

CORRECTION: The original item incorrectly stated that the cyclist was also ticketed.
