WILLIAMSBURG, Brooklyn — A man is accused of throwing eggs at two traffic cops who gave him a ticket Thursday in Williamsburg.

David Prisco illegally parked his car near Kent Avenue and Broadway Thursday morning.

When two traffic cops went to give Prisco a ticket, he allegedly began to hurl eggs at them and threatened to fight them over the ticket.

One of the eggs hit one of the traffic cops.

According to the criminal complaint, Prisco then approached the traffic cops, shouting, “What are you going to do? Do you want to fight?”

In an attempt to start a fight, Prisco had his fists raised at the cops as well.

He was taken into custody but released on his own recognizance.
