Police arrested a man for allegedly driving recklessly and a laundry list of other offenses last week in Sunset Park.

Cops say the 25-year-old suspect called 911 on March 28 at around 7:10 a.m. stating that he’d heard shots fired at 48th Street and Second Avenue.

When officers arrived, they noticed the suspect driving recklessly and running red lights. He subsequently refused to stop his car when asked by police. The suspect was finally stopped by cops at the northwest corner of 41st Street and Fourth Avenue. Police searched the vehicle and found a bag of crack cocaine.

The vehicle was also unregistered.
