Riders throw belligerent drunk man off L train in NYV

Video has emerged of a group of New York City subway riders dousing a drunk man in soup and throwing him off the L train after he became belligerent and began screaming racial slurs.

The man, dressed in a black shirt and carrying a Lime-A-Rita, was seen shouting the n-word on a Brooklyn-bound L train on Saturday.

As the racist tirade continues, he is confronted by several straphangers, who eventually push him onto the platform at Bedford Avenue.

Joshua Pyne, who recorded the incident on his cellphone, told Gothamist that it occurred Saturday afternoon around 2pm after the man had a ‘spat about personal space’ with a group of young black men.

The video begins a few seconds after the man allegedly shouted ‘stupid n*****r’ at the group, who left the train at the 1st Avenue stop, according to Pyne. 

As several straphangers try to deescalate the situation, the man doesn’t seem to be appeased.

‘I talk s**t because I know I can! I’m a lawyer! I went to NYU Law! F**k you!’ he yells at several riders.

As the train pulls into the Bedford Avenue stop, a small group begins pushing the man off the train, who in turn continuously tries to reboard. 

The subway riders also prevented the man from taking his bag that he left on the seat.

‘We all stood in front of it, neither touching it, nor him,’ Pyne said, the actions which further incensed the man.
