Someone should probably tell Stephanie Pratt's boyfriend, alleged "Internet entrepreneur" Julien Chabbott, that it's probably not a good idea to run over a New York City cop with your Ferrari while he's writing you a ticket.
In an amazingly stupid act (thankfully caught on video), Chabbott rushes to his $260,000 sports car as a police officer is in the process of writing him a parking ticket. Instead of trying to reason things out with the cop, Chabbott then gets in his car and tries to drive off, reports Upstart Business Journal.
The police officer was standing in front of the car at the time, and Chabbott runs over the cop's foot as the officer yells at him to stop.
After getting struck, the police officer reacts as you'd probably expect him to react. He reaches into Julien Chabbott's Ferrari, angrily pulls the reality TV groupie out of the vehicle, and slams him to the ground. He then proceeds to cuff Chabbott as reinforcements arrive, as you can see in the video. In the process, Chabbott's Ferrari is seriously scratched as the car door strikes a parked taxi:
Chabbott has been charged with assault, vehicular assault, disorderly conduct, and obstruction. For the vehicular assault charge alone, Chabbott could face potential felony charges and, if convicted, possibly up to four years in jail.
A parking ticket would probably have cost Chabbott a few hundred dollars. For someone who can afford a $260,000 car like Julien Chabbott's Ferrari and is dating one of the stars of MTV's "The Hills," the smart thing to have done is just pay the ticket off and move on.
