New York Police Officer Doused in Chemical During Traffic Stop

A New York police officer was doused in a chemical after stopping a motorist for driving through a red light in Brooklyn, New York, on April 17.

The driver later threw a lit Molotov cocktail at the police while being pursued, according to the New York Police Department.

However, the cocktail bounced off a police car windshield and shattered on the street, according to news reports.
