Brooklyn man arrested in Inwood for allegedly resisting arrest


A Brooklyn man was arrested in Inwood for allegedly resisting arrest on April 6.

According to detectives, Fourth Precinct police observed Christopher Landburg-Parker, 34, of Brooklyn, was driving north on Sheridan Boulevard without a license plate at 2:20 a.m. A VTL stop was initiated and police observed an out of state license plate on the deck of the rear window making it difficult to read. 

A subsequent investigation revealed that Landburg-Parker was driving with license plates not belonging to him and he also had a New York State Parole warrant for his arrest.

One officer suffered pain to his left knee after falling to the ground and another officer suffered back pain. Both officers were transported to a nearby hospital and were treated and released.

Landburg-Parker is charged with multiple VTL violations, three counts of Criminal Possession of a Forged Instrument, Resisting Arrest, and two counts of Assault second Degree, New York State Parole Violation. He was arraigned in First District Court in Hempstead on Tuesday, April 6, 2021.
