A second suspect in last week’s cop assault on the Brooklyn Bridge has been arrested and hit with three charges, police said Friday.
Maria Garcia, 36 – or “Female Suspect No. 1” – was charged with resisting arrest, obstructing governmental administration, and rioting, cops said.
The Brooklyn woman was allegedly being uncooperative with police and refusing to answer questions at the 7th Precinct on the Lower East Side, sources added.
Garcia was arrested at 10 a.m. after cops executed a search warrant at her home in Brooklyn, NYPD Deputy Chief William Aubry said during a press conference at 1 Police Plaza.
