Ferrari 458 Spider Owner Runs Over Cop's Foot, Gets Purple Cardigan Ruined

|

Oh, to be young… The owner of this Ferrari 458 Spider is a twenty something odd boyfriend of The Hills' Stephanie Pratt, and apparently owning a $257,000 (€207,000) makes you invincible to the law.

The real-life episode starts off as the NYPD officer writes the owner (David Osokow?) a ticket for what we assume to be an illegal park job or his choice of a purple cardigan and green shorts combo.

Either way, he decided the best thing to do to avoid a simple illegal parking ticket on his driving record would be to run over the officers foot, which we think is worse.

What ensues is a good ol' beat down from the boys in blue.

Here's how YouTube user Damrys7 described the incident:

"I was walking around Soho, NYC today when I stumbled upon this Ferrari 458 Spider with a cop writing a ticket next to it. I started to record the situation because I thought it'd make a cool video, little did I know what I was in for.

As soon as I started recording the owner of the car appeared and got in it. He slowly started moving since he refused to accept the ticket (the car was parked in a hotels valet zone and the hotel valet had the keys, I myself don't understand why the cop was giving him the ticket, it was approved by the hotel that the car was parked there.)

The cop then told him to stop but he proceeded to move forward. Now at this point I believe the cops foot was under the front drivers side tire. Yet again the owner moved the car forward and apparently he somewhat ran over the cops foot (or at least that's what can be made out from everything in the video, others at the scene claimed otherwise.)

This triggered the cop and he slammed his hand into the drivers window and proceed to open the door (notice how many times he bumped it into the taxi cab) and pull the driver out forcefully. The driver was then thrown on the ground and handcuffed and arrested.

The owners girlfriend seen in the video is also Stephanie Pratt from the MTV hit show, The Hills. The car did suffer some damage, paint chips on the door from when the cop slammed it into the cab and some scuffs by the engine bay shown in the last scene of this video.

Pretty crazy situation, I was definitely at the right place at the right time!"
