BRONX, NEW YORK, JUNE 18- A small army of NYPD patrolmen responded after witnesses say an of out-of-control suspect had to be subdued.
Sources say a male and female were arrested for jumping the turnstile of the Number 2 train at the Prospect Avenue station at 2:15 p.m. on June 12.
The male suspect began kicking the window of the patrol car, when additional officers were called to remove and eventually restrain him.
One unconfirmed report stated that one of the 200 bystanders was also arrested for filming the incident, but that could not immediately be confirmed with the NYPD.
