The NYPD is investigating a bogus police traffic stop staged in Queens to help a Shomrim volunteer whose friend wanted to pop the question to his fiancée.
“This incident is being reviewed by the NYPD and based on preliminary findings, will be referred to the proper unit for possible disciplinary action,” a spokesman said Saturday.
The romantic stunt was pulled off at the behest of Shomrim volunteer Yoel Tyrnauer, who walked into Far Rockaway’s 101 Precinct last Monday, asking for a favor for a pal, groom-to-be Yehuda Coriat, 22.
Two days later, three on-duty, uniformed cops pulled over Coriat and fiancée Sorah Oppen, 20, on the pretext of a gun and drug search.
The cops “grilled” the groom-to-be and demanded the bride-to-be pop the trunk, releasing a bunch of balloons.
The officers were all “NCOs,” Neighborhood Coordination Officers, whose job is to connect with their community.
In April, a Shomrim leader from Borough Park, Brooklyn, was arrested for allegedly bribing cops to “expedite” gun permits for the group, which patrols in Orthodox Jewish communities.
