Diego Palacios, NYPD Officer, Charged With Lying About Driver Trying To Run Him Down

An NYPD officer has been indicted on felony charges for lying in an official police report about a man trying to run him down with his car, an alleged lie that landed the innocent homeowner in jail for three nights.

In February, 30-year old Officer Diego Palacios claimed John Hockenjos, an MTA engineer living in Sheepshead Bay, attempted to run Palacios down at "a high rate of speed" which Palacios reported caused him to "jump out of the way to avoid being hit by defendant’s vehicle.”

But a surveillance video later surfaced showing Hockenjos slowly pulling into his driveway while Palacios stood still-- a far cry from the life-threatening scenario the officer painted.

Hockenjos was exonerated nearly a month after his February 5 arrest. He told The Daily News, "I'm traumatized. It was the worst experience of my entire life."

Thursday's indictment charges Palacios with falsifying records and five types of lying which could put him behind bars for four years.

Hockenjos is reportedly planning to sue both Palacios and the city.

A crowded United Airlines flight was canceled.

A single agent was re-booking a long line of inconvenienced travelers.

Suddenly, an angry passenger pushed his way to the desk. He slapped his ticket on the counter and said, “I HAVE to be on this flight and it has to be FIRST CLASS.”

The agent replied, “I’m sorry, sir. I’ll be happy to try to help you, but I’ve got to help these folks first; and then I’m sure we’ll be able to work something out.”

The passenger was unimpressed. He asked loudly, so that the passengers behind him could hear, “DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHO I AM?”

Without hesitating, the agent smiled and grabbed her public address microphone. “May I have your attention, please?”, she began, her voice heard clearly throughout the terminal. “We have a passenger here at Gate 14 WHO DOES NOT KNOW WHO HE IS. If anyone can help him with his identity, please come to Gate 14”.

With the folks behind him in line laughing hysterically, the man glared at the United Airlines agent, gritted his teeth, and said, “F*** You!”

Without flinching, she smiled and said, “I’m sorry sir, you’ll have to get in line for that, too.”
