Cop grabbed by ‘gang member and put in a HEADLOCK’ as crowd of bystanders chanted ‘f**k him up’

A COP was grabbed by a "gang member and put in a headlock" as a crowd of bystanders chanted "f**k him up."

Two officers were trying to disperse a crowd in the Bronx, New York, on July 1 when they turned against them.

The footage shows a cop trying to arrest a man, who they put one of the officers in a four-second headlock.

"F**k him up! F**k him up!" the person who filmed the video shouted as the suspect wrapped his right arm around the cop's neck.

"They smoked you, p***y! You just got smoked, p***y," the filmer continued.

The video was posted on Twitter on Saturday by the Sergeants Benevolent Association.

The caption read: "COREY JOHNSON your STUPID law is about to be signed by NYC STUPID Mayor it’s time you both take your community input & grab these perps yourself."

"Putting a cop in a headlock could mean a death sentence if they lose control of their gun," an outraged law enforcement source told the New York Post.

"A cop in a headlock can’t maintain weapons control."

Sources also told the outlet that the cop who was put in a headlock had a gash to the head and had to have staples.

Cops also said that the "headlocker" - who is a known gang member - turned himself in a week later.

The suspect was released without charges.

"The NYPD was disappointed that the individual was not charged initially," an NYPD spokesperson told the Post.
