Video shows Jersey City officers kicking, dragging innocent man on fire after crash



JERSEY CITY, New Jersey (WABC) --
Cellphone video obtained by Eyewitness News shows police officers kicking and dragging an innocent bystander who was on fire following a chase and fiery crash in New Jersey Sunday night.

The incident happened just after 11 p.m. as Jersey City police officers tried to stop the driver of a car near Ocean Avenue and Cator Avenue.

During the pursuit, the Hudson County Prosecutor's Office said the fleeing driver was involved in two different crashes. In the first, officers fired shots at the driver as he tried to drive between two lanes of traffic, but they say the driver, 48-year-old Leo Pinkston, kept going.

Several blocks later, on Tonnelle Avenue, the fleeing driver crashed into a utility pole, causing a fire that somehow injured another driver in a different car.

It's apparently this driver, 28-year-old Miguel Feliz, who can be seen in the video (watch the graphic video in the player below). He gets out of his car and is on fire as officers approach him.

Watch the cellphone video below:

In the video, the first officer goes up and kicks Feliz, knocking him down. Another officer appears to kick him as well.

The officers then drag him away from the fire scene, off the sidewalk and into the road. He was eventually hospitalized with severe burns.

"My brother right now is in very bad shape," said Ramon Feliz, the victim's brother. "Thirty percent of his body is burned."

He said his brother, a young father from West New York, was heading home from work and was critically injured.

Miguel Feliz remains at St. Barnabas Medical Center in critical condition, being treated for severe burns to his body. His uncle said he opened his eyes for the first time on Wednesday night.

JERSEY CITY - Lois Pinkston said she can't justify her husband's alleged six-mile police pursuit, but she's still trying to piece together what went wrong late Sunday night.

Standing outside the Hudson County courthouse Wednesday afternoon, the emotional wife said she is frustrated she has still not been able to see her husband. She was turned away at the hospital and it's the second consecutive day she arrived for court only to learn he won't be appearing before a judge.

Her husand, Leo Pinkston, 48, is charged with aggravated assault and eluding in connection with the pursuit that ended in a fiery crash on Tonnelle Avenue and left a bystander in critical condition.
