A 34-year-old man who co-owns Mac’s Public House, a Staten Island bar, was arrested for violating coronavirus restrictions against in-door dining. Upon trying to get away, the suspect drove with the deputy holding onto the vehicle’s hood down South Railroad Avenue and then turning left onto two avenues more before being stopped by a sheriff’s vehicle. The cop suffered broken legs from the incident.
