Teenager convicted for dragging an NYPD officer who was arrested once more in Brooklyn after allegedly stealing a automobile and searching down the police

EAST NEW YORK, Brooklyn (WABC) – A teenager previously convicted of hauling an NYPD officer in Brooklyn was arrested again after allegedly stealing a car and leading police in a car chase.

Police say Justin Murrell, 19, gave a red light and led police on a car chase in East New York early Sunday morning.

Police Murrell drove recklessly and blew through a red light, eventually leading officers on a high speed chase and crashing into several cars near Van Sinderen and New Lots Avenues.

Murrell tried to run away but was eventually taken into custody at around 1:20 a.m.

Murrell was still on probation a little over two weeks after dragging an NYPD officer in 2016, causing the officer permanent brain damage.
