According to a Daily Caller report, the 84-year-old named Kang Chun Wong committed jaywalking at an Upper West Side intersection on Sunday afternoon.

A police officer came to him and tried to write him a ticket, but Wong, who doesn't speak English, didn't understand what the officer wanted and continued walking away. The police officer then tried to grab Wong, who pushed the officer away.

This prompted the fury of several cops on the scene, who descended on Wong and threw him against a wall.

According to local media, Wong came away from the encounter with a bloodied face and was brought to the police station after having four staples in hospital to close a head wound.
