The driver accused of the death and fight of an NYPD officer on Tuesday apologized and cried as he was released from the Queens area in handcuffs.
Jessica Beauvais, 32, was in tears outside Precinct 107 as a police officer led her to a squad car and led her to the back seat.
Jessica Beauvais, the driver of a car that police say has beaten and killed an NYPD officer, is crying as she leaves the area in Queens.
“I apologize for hitting her and that she is dead. I didn’t mean to. I’m sorry! “He cried.
Beauvais was asked by reporters where he came from before the morning crash that claimed the life of NYPD Highway Officer Anastasios Tsakos, 43, near the Long Island Expressway.
“I was coming out of the studio,” he said as the car door closed and his surgical mask began to slip. “I’m making a podcast.”
Cops said Beauvais ignored traffic congestion and glare lights before hitting Tsakos with his Volkswagen Passat. With her front window shattered, she sped off in the accident but was arrested a short distance away – where she screamed and swore at police as they took her away, police sources said.
It was not the first vitriol spit on by the police. Just hours before the incident, the drunken driver shared a vivid thought about police after the guilty verdict against former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin who was convicted last week of killing George Floyd during his arrest last year.
The podcast, posted on his Facebook page opens with background music from N.W.A rap rap music. “The police.” Beauvais, who appears to be wearing the same clothes he wore outside the yard, follows the introduction with greater confidence than the one shown outside the area.
“What worries me is that we had to go through a test to prove that George Floyd did not f —– **** himself,” Beauvais said in another derogatory tirade sent under the name Phoenix Michel.
“If you were in fear for your life, go to the secretary at Walmart. Have mercy on us all. Go and open a crèche. But please stop beating us with bulls — excuses for feeling threatened. ”
During the podcast video, Beauvais fills and drinks in exchange for a bottle with a Snapple label and a small red cup.
Beauvais was awaiting trial on charges including DWI, carjacking, leaving a dangerous scene, reckless driving, and driving with a suspended license.
His driver’s license was suspended for failing to pay for a Drive Responsibility Assessment after a speeding trial, according to a source. Beauvais’ driving record includes offenders dating since 2012, including unregistered driving and illegal vehicle use.
