Topless Drunk Woman Provokes Mounted Police on Ludlow [Video]

Posted on: May 23rd, 2011 at 6:28 am by

Late night Ludlow on the weekends always provides a steady diet of drunken street theater. Especially since the whole Seventh Precinct crackdown began. Shortly after 1 am Friday evening, a mounted police force clopped down the street, which was seemingly early for such a patrol. Anyway, by the time we reached the Bulgarian Bar, a crowd gathered around the scene. And with reason.

That woman was so damn twisted. Basically topless, this drunken mess spent quite a bit of time provoking the cops with slurred speech and screams. The officers continually warned the boyfriend to exercise restraint or some shit would go down. As you might imagine, the hoopla elicited plenty of commentary from the passing peanut gallery.

Video is a bit blurry, but no less hilarious:

Meanwhile, a portable police spotlight still sits at the top of Ludlow Street.

     Amazing that she didn’t end up as a guest in the Tombs for the weekend.

      Definitely surprising that the cops didn’t book her, just let her wander the street and sidewalk wasted out of her gourd.

    this is how a drunken situation should be handled by police. realizing that the poor fat chick was drunk yet posed no threat, and despite her even going so far as to put her hands on the cops and the horse, they restrained themselves from their usual excuse to beat the shit out of her and everyone around, including the cameraman, and mase and arrest multiple people. all cops should take note.  now that I think about it, i can’t believe this isn’t some PR video slipped out by NYPD, actually.  are you sure they are real police officers?

    if they were minorities taunting the police, the cops probably had them arrested, esp. if they were wearing a turban — probably water boarded them too
