The agony of arrest. A 14-year-old suspect wailed as a cop led him away in handcuffs after police say he made off with a BMW convertible owned by someone known to him, took it for a ride in Crown Heigths and then crashed it into a parked car outside of Public School 375, the Jackie Robinson School, on McKeever
He loved the free ride — and cried like his heart was broken when it ended with him in cuffs.
A 14-year-old suspect wailed as cops slapped the cuffs on him Tuesday morning after police say he took a BMW from someone known to him and crashed it in front of a Brooklyn school.
The suspect lost control of the BMW and slammed into multiple parked cars, then drove away and crashed into a hybrid SUV belonging to a teacher at the Jackie Robinson School.
Witnesses told police that the teen — whose name the Daily News is withholding on account of his age — blew past a stop sign and a red light as he sped through Crown Heights in the grey BMW convertible, which had Maine plates.
He lost control of the ride about 10 a.m. and crashed it into two parked cars, police source said, citing witness accounts. He sped off, only to smash the Bimmer into a third parked car — a blue SUV — outside of Public School 375, the Jackie Robinson School, on McKeever Pl. The SUV belonged to a teacher at the school, police said.
The suspect howled with displeasure at the fateful ending of his joyride. He tried to make a getaway on foot, but police chased after him and collared him inside an apartment building near P.S. 375.
The teen, a Crown Heights resident who wore a white tank-top and sagged his light blue athletic shorts, ran from the wrecked ride, and responding officers pursued him as he scampered into an apartment building around the corner on Sullivan Pl., the sources said.
The officers found him hiding inside the apartment building and captured him after a brief struggle, the sources said.
It was no exaggeration to say that he didn’t go quietly.
A Daily News photographer snapped shots of the suspect howling as a cop led him away from the scene with his hands cuffed behind his back.
Cops charged him with reckless endangerment, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, resisting arrest, and criminal mischief. He was charged as a minor.
