VIDEO: Man Throws Chinese Food At NYPD Officers During Fight In The Bronx

Angel Wimberly was arrested after he hurled a container of Chinese food at an NYPD officer.

Bronx, NY – A Bronx man was caught on video hurling a metal container of Chinese food at a New York Police Department (NYPD) officer as police tried to disperse a hostile crowd on Saturday night (video below).

The incident occurred at about 10:45 p.m. on Aug. 10 as NYPD officers assigned to work the annual barbecue at Monroe Family Day were trying to clear an unruly group of people from the basketball court located behind 1802 Story Avenue, according to NYPD Spokesperson Detective Sophia Mason.

Det. Mason told Blue Lives Matter in an email that the area is one that officers have been repeatedly called to for complaints about crime and disorder.

The detective said that officers gave multiple commands to the crowd to disperse but group refused to leave the area.

The video, posted to social media, showed a mix of uniformed and plainclothes officers on the basketball court in the Castle Hill section of the Bronx attempting to take a man in a white shirt and shorts into custody.

A hostile crowd surrounded them, with numerous people holding up cell phones to film the interaction, as the man in white fought the officers, the video showed.

The man in white repeatedly took up a fighting stance with the officers as they chased him around the basketball court.

Officers were ultimately able to take the man to the ground, but he continued to fight them and managed to get back up on his feet, the video showed.

Seconds later, they took him to the ground again and worked quickly to put him in handcuffs as the surrounding crowd closed in around them.

Throughout the video, a man in a red hat can be seen holding up his cell phone with one hand and holding a rectangular metal container of food in the other.

As officers worked to take the man in white into custody, additional officers stepped up close to push back the encroaching crowd.

All of a sudden, a container of food was hurtled at the back of an officer, the video showed.

The officer turned and looked for his attacker with what appeared to be Lo Mein noodles dripping off his shoulders and back.

Then he marched determinedly after the man in the red hat, who dashed behind a car to escape him, the video showed.

The man who had just assaulted an NYPD officer with a metal container of Chinese food pranced around the perimeter of the basketball court to get away from police, but another officer in uniform intercepted him just as the video ended.

Angel Wimberly, 20, was arrested and charged with resisting arrest, second degree obstructing governmental administration, and disorderly conduct – fight/violent behavior, Det. Mason told Blue Lives Matter.

She said one additional arrest was made at the scene, and seven other people were given summonses for disorderly conduct.

The assault with Chinese food comes on the heels of multiple water attacks on uniformed NYPD officers in recent weeks as they responded to emergency calls in various parts of the city.

In the wake of the water attacks, two Republican New York state assemblymen announced they would introduce legislation to make assaulting a police officer with any kind of liquid a felony, but at least one Democratic lawmaker has said he will fight it.

There is no law and order there because the police are being attacked by your own Mayor and Police commissioner. Back your officer before it is to late.

He probably had a legit reason to square up. No telling what the cop did to make the arrestee defend himself prior to this video starting.

New normal in ghetto of south bronx, thanks to jimmy the coward Oneil. All he has done is gut a dept that took back the streets from skells, dealers, gang bangers, and given it back to them and radical left neighborhood organizers like our former president did before his first job as senator.

Act a fool, get treated like a fool. Don't get mad and cry about “excessive force” when you get a taste of your own medicine.

What a sad and telling commentary that the man is described as "the man in white" but there is no mention of his race. This just in (from Ferguson years ago): Black Lives Matter perpetuates the narrative that black people are afraid of being murdered by police for no reason other than the color of their skin. How can this be reconciled with people throwing things at the police?! Call me "crazy" but if I were truly afraid of being gunned down by police officers, I would not throw things at them.

Why not cordon off the area, and let them kill each other off? Any cop who’d walk into that pack of animals deserves a raise in pay.

Seems like the best way to survive as a cop in NY under this current “leadership” is to turn on your blinders and keep driving.
