According to a tweet from NYPD Transit, three cops were at the chain when a man walked in and adjusted his pants, causing the loaded gun to fall through his pant leg. The police officers saw the gun on the ground and arrested the man, stating he was a “repeat felon.”
In a video shared by a Twitter user, security footage shows the man walking in before immediately seeming to drop the gun. Two police officers are then seen arresting the suspect while another officer appears to pick up the gun and magazine.
The officers attributed the incident to a transit cop’s “craving for cake batter ice cream.”
The man was taken into custody.
