VIDEO: Ferrari Driver Runs Over NYPD Cop's Foot

A New York City police officer plans to sue a reality TV star's boyfriend who drove his Ferrari over the officer's foot while he was issuing a citation to the man.

Officer Felix Recio told the New York Post he will file a $10 million lawsuit against Julien Chabbott, after he allegedly ran over the officer's foot outside the Mercer Hotel earlier this month.

Chabbott is dating Stephanie Pratt, who is best known for her role on MTV's The Hills.

Considering that armed robbers, rapists, murderers, etc... sue us if they even get their feelings hurt when they refuse to comply with being arrested, I hope this officer gets a big paycheck. Even though I question why he had his foot in front of the tire in the first place. Just because you drive a Ferrari doesn’t mean you’re special. In this case it just means you're a dufuss with a rich girlfriend.

I have over 37 years of law enforcement experience (still active) and I have never had my foot run over because I was always aware of where my body parts where, where the perps hands were, and the location of most everything that might cause me harm. If I erred, I would not sue someone over it.

I have wanted to sue for defamation of character a time or two, but sadly being accused of having better things to do does not interest any lawyer I know!
