Bicyclists Struck By Vehicles At Protest Near Brooklyn Bridge

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- A chaotic scene unfolded overnight near the Brooklyn Bridge.

Around 10 p.m. on the Brooklyn side, the driver of a Volkswagen sedan was trying to get around a group of bike-riding protesters, when someone jumped on top of the car.

The 21-year-old driver took off with the person still on the car, and clipped another protester in the process.

While pursing that vehicle, a police car clipped a third protesters, knocking the 56-year-old man to the ground.

All three protesters refused medical attention at the scene, and the driver was taken into custody.
