LIC resident ‘drunk with power’, NYPost reports
You can’t arrest me — I am the law!
A boozed-up Brooklyn assistant district attorney was busted Thursday for allegedly refusing to pay cab fare — after telling cops that they couldn’t lock him up because he “outranked” them, sources said.
Blitzed barrister Imran Ansari was apparently heading to his home in Long Island City, Queens, at 10:19 p.m. when taxi driver Mohammad Hossain stopped his cab at 48th Avenue and Vernon Boulevard to let him out.
According to sources, the tipsy assistant DA refused to cough up the cab fare, telling Hossain: “I’m not going to pay you.”
The outraged hack drove with Ansari to the 108th Precinct station house, where he reported the ADA’s refusal to pay to police.
Cops told the drunk Ansari several times to produce the $21.50 fare, sources said.
But Ansari allegedly refused, and haughtily declared, “I’m a Brooklyn ADA and I outrank you,” a source said.
