Cop causes freak sprinkler mishap at NYC precinct

A Brooklyn police precinct isn’t simply drowning in paperwork — it’s completely drenched.

The NYPD’s 72nd Precinct was a flood zone Monday — due to a key-slinging cop who unintentionally triggered the sprinkler system with a nasty throw, officers mentioned.

Video of the deluge obtained by The Publish reveals a sprinkler on full blast contained in the Greenwood Heights stationhouse and water pooling on the ground.

The slippery snafu was attributable to a set of keys that went astray when tossed, police mentioned.

“This is a complete accident,” an NYPD spokesman mentioned. “A member of the service tossed keys to another member when it accidentally struck a sprinkler head, causing the single sprinkler to go off.”

The sprinkler was shortly shut off and the mishap induced solely “minimal damage to the desk area,” the spokesman mentioned.

An NYPD officer unintentionally set off the sprinkler system on an alleged unhealthy throw on the 72nd Precinct.

Nonetheless, sources instructed The Publish that the sudden deluge might have additionally trashed tools and data.
