An anti-police activist and podcast host told her audience on Facebook “f*** the police” just hours before she reportedly hit and killed a New York City police officer with her car and then left the scene on Tuesday.
WABC-TV reported police say 32-year-old Jessica Beauvais had drunk tequila, wine and vodka, and had also smoked marijuana, before she got behind the wheel and hit NYPD officer Anastasios Tsakos. The cop was standing in full reflective gear next to a lighted police cruiser early Tuesday morning on the Long Island Expressway when his life was cut short.
Tsakos was reportedly helping with traffic following a deadly crash when Beauvais came along and hit him with her vehicle at a high rate of speed. The officer was thrown 100 feet, according to WABC.
The woman then fled before she was tracked down by other officers.
