She’s wheelie done it now!
An NYPD officer is under internal investigation after video showed her joyriding on the back of a dirt bike on Banker Street in Brooklyn, defying the NYPD’s own highly-publicized crackdown on the illegal vehicles.
The brief, seconds-long clip obtained by The Post shows the officer hugging the dirt biker, who pops a wheelie as the two glide down an apparently empty street while other bikers and motorcycle riders look on.
Dirt bikes and ATVs are not legally permitted on New York City streets. Mayor Bill de Blasio and the NYPD have repeatedly pledged to crack down on illegal dirt bikes and ATVs this summer by confiscating and destroying them.
The mayor appeared last Thursday with NYPD officials at the Fresh Kills Landfill on Staten Island to ceremoniously crush several dozen illegal dirt bikes and ATVs.
“Instead of just talking about the fact it’s against the law or giving a summons or anything like that, we’re doing the most aggressive thing possible – we’re taking the dirt bike away and you’re never going to see it again,” Hizzoner claimed during the stunt.
The mayor also tweeted out video of the bikes being crushed with the caption, “We have a message for anyone driving an illegal dirt bike in New York City: We’re gonna crush it.”
It’s unclear if the police officer in the video hitched her dirt bike ride before or after de Blasio’s bike-crushing performance. Sources said the incident happened recently.
“Unbelievable. We’re supposed to lead by example,” one cop said, adding that the woman should be suspended.
An NYPD rep said police officials are “aware of the video.”
“The incident is under investigation,” spokeswoman Det. Denise Moroney said.
