A jarring video shows a group of seven men hurling glass bottles at officers from the NYPD during an arrest in the Bronx that became violent and out-of-control.

The Sunday night melee broke out around 8:05pm, when officers from the 44th Precinct were informed of a large group gathering at East 168 Street and Sheridan Avenue in the Bronx. 

Members of the group were observed drinking, playing loud music, blocking the sidewalk, and acting disorderly, an NYPD spokesperson told DailyMail.com on Wednesday.

Officers approached an individual who attempted to flee the location but was apprehended armed with a loaded firearm. 

The shocking scene was caught on video. The incensed group can be heard shouting in English and Spanish, while one screamed, ‘Why you push him? Why you hit him?’ as officers apprehended one man who was down on the ground.

‘Look they hit him!, Look they hit him!,’ they yelled at officers.

A fist fight soon broke out between one of the officers and one of the men. Many bystanders used their cell phones to capture the wild scene.

Four officers sustained minor injuries, and four men were issued summonses, according to the NYPD.

Erni Taveras, 20, of Franklin Avenue in the Bronx, was the only person charged with assault in the group. 

He was charged with assaulting a police officer, as well as with resisting arrest, inciting a riot, disorderly conduct and harassment. 

Nineteen-year-old Yorky Hernandez from Burke Avenue in the Bronx, was charged with six offenses, including criminal possession of a weapon and firearm and unlawful possession of a large capacity ammunition feeding device.

Alonzo, Bryan, 20, of Echo Place in the Bronx was charged with resisting arrest, obstructing governmental administration, criminal possession of a weapon and disorderly conduct. 

A fourth person remains at large and Crime Stoppers have put up a reward of up to $3,500 for help with their capture. 

In total, seven unidentified males threw glass bottles towards the victim, later fleeing on foot ‘to parts unknown,’ according to the NYPD.

The victim sustained bruising and cuts to the face and was removed to a local area hospital in stable condition.

While murders in the city are down 5.6% from last year, robbery is up 39.2%, from 6,530 to 9,091, and burglaries increased by 32.9%, from 6,251 to 8,305, according to NYPD data.

Felony assault rose by 18.6% and rapes saw an 11% increase so far this year compared to 2021. 

NYC Mayor Eric Adams has been a vociferous supporter of an expansion in the city’s police presence since becoming mayor in 2021, doubling the number of cops on the city’s subway and bringing back plain-clothes officers in new Neighborhood Safety Teams. 

In June, the Supreme Court struck down a New York law that severely restricted licenses to carry a concealed weapon, in the high court’s biggest Second Amendment ruling in more than a decade.

President Joe Biden said he was ‘deeply disappointed’ in the ruling, saying in a statement that it ‘contradicts both common sense and the Constitution, and should deeply trouble us all.’  

The 6-3 ruling reversed a lower court’s opinion, which had upheld the 108-year-old New York law restricting licenses to carry concealed weapons in public only to those demonstrating ‘proper cause.’

Justice Clarence Thomas delivered the majority opinion, writing that the New York law prevented law-abiding citizens from exercising their Second Amendment rights.

New York is not alone in severely limiting who can get a license to carry concealed in public, and the new ruling will likely make it easier to legally carry a gun in other major cities including Los Angeles, Boston and Baltimore.

New York City Mayor Eric Adams — who himself has a concealed carry permit and was elected on a platform of cracking down on crime — said that the ruling ‘will put New Yorkers at further risk of gun violence.’

'The decision has made every single one of us less safe from gun violence,' Mayor Eric Adams said  blasting the Supreme Court's decision and sharing his concerns on the new controversial ruling
