The scene at BP yesterday afternoon

A reader shares these photos from yesterday afternoon at the BP station on Second Avenue at East First Street... there were blocks-long lines all day...

According to the reader:

Passing the gas station ... I heard a policeman screaming 'shut your door' to a woman driver one car away from tanking up. I guess she didn't cause the next thing I heard was her screaming. When I doubled back to see what the commotion was, she was on the ground getting cuffed! I was shocked to see such a display of force upon a mother in front of her two kids.

The reader didn't see everything that transpired here. So perhaps there was more to the NYPD's actions. Did anyone else witness this?

I will speculate; this person cut in line and refused to go to the back of the line, someone called the cops, and the person was arrested.

I saw something similar happen for the gas line on 2nd Ave for the e2nd st. gas station.
