The vehicle belongs to a police officer and is the officer's private car, NYPD told PIX11 News Thursday morning.

It was not immediately clear if the fire was related to protests sparked by a grand jury's decision not to indict a police officer in the in-custody death of Eric Garner.

An investigation is ongoing.

    Shouldn’t the cop be getting a reckless driving charge and some parking tickets for driving and parking on a sidewalk?
