A Queens man who was released without bail after he allegedly shot another man during a robbery in February dragged an NYPD officer with his car during a traffic stop in Brooklyn on Friday, police said.

Takim Newson, 32, was arrested on Long Island after body camera footage caught him reversing his vehicle during a car stop in Brooklyn’s 71st Precinct — which includes parts of Crown Heights, Wingate and Prospect-Lefferts Gardens — around 3:50 a.m. on Friday, the NYPD said.


After he dragged the officer with his car, Newson allegedly drove to Far Rockaway, where he broke into an apartment and told the woman inside he had a gun, the New York Post reported, citing police sources.

Thirty minutes later, he allegedly stole a Jaguar that a driver had left running outside a home on Beach 13th Street, according to the outlet.
