Busted in bot­tle toss

New York Daily News - - NEWS - John An­nese With Thomas Tracy

Cops have locked up a man on riot charges af­ter a rau­cous crowd threw bot­tles at po­lice in Har­lem over the week­end, and the NYPD is vow­ing more ar­rests will fol­low.

Darryl Hen­der­son, 58, was busted Mon­day, af­ter the caught-on-video in­ci­dent, which the city’s po­lice unions de­scribed as the re­sult of re­for­m­minded politi­cians “sur­ren­der­ing our city.”

Po­lice pulled up to Adam Clayton Pow­ell Jr. Blvd. and 133rd St. around 3:45 a.m. Sun­day to in­ves­ti­gate a ShotSpot­ter ac­ti­va­tion, the NYPD’s high­tech sen­sors for de­tect­ing gun­fire, ac­cord­ing to cops.

A crowd of over 500 pelted the of­fi­cers, and their backup, with a rain of bot­tles, po­lice said.
