GREENBURGH, N.Y. A Greenburgh Taxi driver intentionally ran an unmarked cop car off the road, police said.
Members of the Greenburgh Drug and Alcohol Task Force were in pursuit of a known drug dealer on Cabot Avenue in Elmsford just after 3 p.m. on April 10 when Robert Glusky, a driver for Greenburgh Taxi, intentionally veered into head on traffic, directly towards the unmarked car, police said.
Cops were forced to swerve to avoid an accident with Glusky, who had a customer in the back seat, and narrowly missed a row of parked cars, a signpost and a utility pole, according to police reports.
When officers caught up to the Bedford Hills taxi driver and attempted to place him under arrest, he refused to get out of the car, police said.
Even when cops were finally able to get Glusky out of the 2001 Crown Victoria, he began flailing his arms and engaged officers in a violent struggle, police said.
Glusky was taken to Greenburgh Police station where he was charged with second-degree reckless endangerment and resisting arrest, both misdemeanors, and given an appearance ticket for Greenburgh Town Court.
