Can We Say Stupid! 19 Year Old Trying To Sell Cocaine At Occupy Wall St.
Cops say the dealer punched a woman , then hit a man who came to her defense.
A Brooklyn man who tried to sell cocaine to Occupy Wall Street protesters and then attacked a group of the occupiers has been busted by cops.
Garfield Leslie, 19, of Bedford-Stuyvesant, was arrested Saturday night at Zuccotti Park for assault and drug possession. Cops said the would-be dealer punched a woman , then hit a man who came to her defense.
"That was the craziest thing I've seen since working here," said Harry Wyman, 22, of Brownsville, a security volunteer at the protest. He said the woman who fell suffered a fractured wrist, and Leslie hit another woman in the head and busted a man's lip.
"He came in from the outside to sell drugs," Wyman said. "As security, we don't want any of that in the park. I came over and told him he had to leave. He said he would."
But when he came back a few minutes later, Wyman said, a brawl was breaking out. "The drug dealer pepper-sprayed a man," he said. "It was an uproar."
