    Re: Ferrari 458 Spider runs over police

    Having respect for the cops is a good thing. Bleeting like a sheep in their presence, not so much.

    If you're stopped for speeding, the cop has a very reasonable expectation of you waiting to receive your citation. A parking ticket is quite different. Usually the parking ticket is just left on the vehicle, but also a copy is sent in the mail since so many tickets seem to have been removed from the vehicle prior to the owner returning to his car (especially in NYC).

    If the officer didn't stop him from entering the car, and then heard the car start; if he wanted him to remain at the scene, he should have stepped in front of the car. Standing very oddly close to the front quarter panel was both unclear and silly.

    In my view the driver had every right to proceed and expect a ticket in the mail. I generally support the cops, but I don't support stupidity.

    Follow-up.

    Police officer is suing the driver for $10MM.

    http://ca.autoblog.com/2012/08/22/nyc-cop-whose-foot-was-run-over-by-ferrari-driver-reportedly-fil/

    Remember the genius who tried to run over an NYPD officer that was writing ticket for said genius' illegally parked Ferrari? Said genius is being sued by said cop for US$10 million.

    The 458 Italia owner has a name; Julien Chabbot. According to the New York Post, the 28-year-old internet entrepreneur is being sued by officer Felix Recio, who claims Chabbot intentionally tried to run him over when he was attempting to write a ticket. Recio has reportedly retained lawyer Sal Strazzullo, who has motioned to increase the criminal charges from felony assault to first-degree assault with a deadly weapon. "Chabbott clearly had no regard for Officer Recio's life," said Strazzullo, "hitting him with his Ferrari could have caused serious injured or even death.

    According to the report, the August 4 SoHo incident left the 34-year-old officer with "a swollen foot and bruising." Recio continued, "I believe he deliberately drove towards me with an intent to hurt me." Recio is suing for personal injury and says he has not been able to work since the incident.

    Meanwhile, Chabbott's attorney, Ben Brafman, denies the upped charges, stating: "We are not aware of any civil lawsuit... I would be shocked if a US$10 million lawsuit is in fact being contemplated given the fact that we have developed information to the effect that the officer in question appears to have suffered no injury whatsoever."

    We'll see how this sordid legal affair plays out. In the meantime, click here to watch the caught-on-video incident.

    this is getting more absurd by the minute.

    Re: Ferrari 458 Spider runs over police

    I'd heard about American lawyers chasing ambulances. It would now appear that they also chase cop cars. Smiley

    Re: Ferrari 458 Spider runs over police

    His lawyer should be careful. To allege an intention act could nullify his auto insurance coverage. Obviously, the Ferrari owner will claim accident but if the facts point to intentional then it is possible the insurance company will deny coverage.

    That said, if the owner has substantial assets and NY allows punitive damages for intentional acts then the police officer could have a winning lottery ticket.

    Re: Ferrari 458 Spider runs over police

    New York does allow for punitive damages. This may be tempered with the fact that the officer intentionally put himself in the path of the car while the car was moving in a way that the driver would not necessarily know he was going to contact the officer.

    Courts ought not reward those who intentionally cause injury to themselves when the event is completely avoidable.


    Re: Ferrari 458 Spider runs over police

    Heist:

    ...the fact that the officer intentionally put himself in the path of the car while the car was moving...

    ...except, the officer did not. The engine had not even been started when the officer took as step forward in front of the car. It is a major difference compared to the officer taking a step forward while the car was moving. Hence, IMHO the driver is responsible for his vehicle and if you start your car, drive and hit a stationary person the driver has done wrong.

    Re: Ferrari 458 Spider runs over police

    How about standing in the middle of the road while writing the ticket?

    Should he not give a parking ticket standing on the kerb, instead of dangerously on the right lane?


    Re: Ferrari 458 Spider runs over police

    Must admit I used to be much more respectful towards law enforcement. Since they became collectors for their ridiculous pension plans here in California by handing out expensive tickets to anyone and everyone I'm not pulling for them like I used to. If this cop is dumb enough to try to stop a car with his foot, it's hard to feel sorry for him. 10 million, if it's true, is one more example of the entitlement mentality that is sweeping through the public sector.

    I think that you and I saw the same video, other posters may have seen something else; I can't be sure?

    However, on the topic of avoidable accidents; last night I was approaching an 18-wheeler which had clearly stopped on a two lane State highway. I could easily tell by the lack of closing time between his vehicle and mine. Within about a quarter mile (or about 3/10 kilometer) there was a large woman walking on the driver's right side of the road (which is were a pedestrian should be) and she rather startled me. As I continued to approach the multiple sets of non-moving head lights, I did slow quite a bit. There was a small van (or mini-van) and then a large truck with other vehicles behind them.

    As I passed in a rather slow manner the van's headlights and the truck's headlights; I was very 'again very' suprised to see a large male individual walking down the center lane of the highway: whom I successfully avoided making contact with.

    All I can think is really if you are involved with a bunch of vehicles stopped and blocking one lane of the highway, and you could walk along the shoulder of the road: what would posses you to walk down the middle of a state highway?

    At night, in the dark where you could expect oncoming vehicles to be blinded by oncoming headlights. Smiley

    I should have mentioned this was in Missouri, if I had been in Kansas at the time, the guy would have been dead. Just not anything I would have expected.
