Accused Drug Dealer Suffers Gruesome Injury Running from NYPD

November 05, 2007  | 

A Harlem man accused of selling drugs tore open his groin Thursday trying to escape NYPD officers while trying to climb a chain-link fence.

Witnesses told the New York Daily News that the officers made the injury worse when they pulled the impaled man off of the fence. Police officials denied the charge.

The suspect was in grave condition. He was rushed into emergency surgery and was in stable condition last night.

Narcotics officers say they spotted the man selling drugs about 3 p.m. Thursday and chased him four blocks.

Charges are pending against the suspect, whose name was not released.

I'd say that's worse than any jail sentence... and as a double bonus, now he can't contaminate the rest of the world.

I wander what the bystanders would have said if the officers left the crook hanging until EMS could get there?
