A party-boat brawl turned into a high-speed police chase through Brooklyn late Friday night that ended with police firing at the fleeing suspect’s car after it crashed, police and witnesses said.

The chase began when cops responding to a fist-fight at Pier 11 on 58th St. and 1st Ave. in Bay Ridge discovered the suspects driving recklessly around 11 p.m., authorities said.




The suspects tore off with police in hot pursuit, driving nearly five miles before crashing into a silver Mercedes SUV at the corner of Ave C. and E. 8th St. in Kensington.

“It looked like something out of a f—ing movie,” said a neighborhood resident who was crossing the street when he saw a dark colored sedan tearing down the residential street at 50 miles per hour around 11:40 p.m. “They hit it so hard the SUV went airborne.”

The man, who declined to give his name, said two officers immediately jumped out of their squad car with guns drawn and approached two young men trapped in the wreck.

“Show me your f—ing hands,” he said one of the officers shouted.

“Don’t move or I’ll f—ing shoot you,” the other warned, according to the witness.

Police fired one shot during the nearly 15 minute standoff.

“They were sitting in the car for a while and couldn’t get out,” he said. “There were cops surrounding them up and down the block. They wanted to make sure they had no escape route.”
