NYPD COP POINTS GUN AT BYSTANDER—INSTAGRAM PHOTO          

A plainclothes police officer—in need of anger management—was caught on video pointing his gun at a bystander during an arrest Thursday.

The shocking incident occurred at 480 St. Nicholas Ave. in Harlem around 6:40 p.m, according to reports from by WNBC.

The officer had been pursuing a suspect riding an illegal dirt bike when he, and another officer, apprehended the suspect inside a public housing building. As the two officers were attempting to arrest the suspect, one of the officers noticed someone recording the incident. The officer is then seen aiming his weapon at the person filming the incident.

Later, the same cop, is seen exiting the building and sucker punching another young Black man in the face in what appears to be an unprovoked attack.

A spokesperson for the NYPD said they did not know what triggered the officer to strike the young man with the camera phone, who was identified as 19-year-old Jahnico Harvey.

The officer involved was later stripped of his gun and badge pending an Internal Affairs investigation.

His identity was not immediately released to the public.
