Driver of stolen BMW crashes into 2 NYPD cars a day after auto theft explodes


A motorist in a stolen BMW rammed two NYPD vehicles and injured four police officers in Queens on Thursday night – just a day after he was arrested for allegedly stealing another car and let go, cops said.

Nicholas Deosaran, 20, had been freed without bail on an appearance ticket on Wednesday – and the ink was barely dry on the paperwork on Thursday when he allegedly took a dangerous ride in another stolen car around 9.30pm.

As he drove through St. Albans in the hot 2011 BMW 3 Series – which he reportedly first boosted in September – police from the Queens South Auto Larceny Unit identified the car as stolen and attempted to stop it, police said.

When he reached the intersection of Merrick and Bailey Boulevards, he reportedly backed up and collided with an unmarked police car occupied by an officer.

Then he drove off and hit a second unmarked vehicle with three cops inside, authorities said.

Deosaran and a woman inside his car were taken into custody – although the woman was later released, police said.

All four officers were taken to a local hospital with minor injuries, cops said.

Deosaran was slapped with two counts of assault on a police officer, two counts of attempted assault on a police officer, and one count each of reckless endangerment and grand theft of an automobile.

He was also charged with felony possession of stolen property, obstructing government administration, unauthorized use of a vehicle, aggravated operating without a license and operating without a license, cops said.

While in police custody, he was also charged with a separate petty theft from January, police said.

A day before allegedly injuring officers, Deosaran was arrested for a Feb. 26 auto theft in Brooklyn, cops said.

The driver left the key in the ignition when Deosaran allegedly took it. It was not immediately clear how he was found and linked to the crime.

He was charged with grand larceny of motor vehicle and released on an appearance ticket and is due in court on November 7, police said. It was unclear on Friday why he had only received a ticket to appear on the charges.

Deosaran was previously arrested on June 29 – when he was linked to two major car thefts and also charged with criminal possession of stolen property, authorities said.

Deosaran’s arraignment in connection with Thursday’s bust was pending Friday.
