THIS is the moment a fearless cop is dragged along the ground after trying to stop a reckless driver racing through Times Square.

The incident, which happened around 11:30 p.m. Saturday on Broadway and West 53rd Street, was caught on cell phone video.

After escaping from the intersection, the Mercedes blasted its way westbound on West 42nd Street, hitting multiple cars and, eventually, disappearing.

Koreas to hold talks on North Korea art troupe's visit to Olympics
The talks were arranged after North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un recently made an abrupt push for improved ties with South Korea. Last week's talks was considered the biggest thaw in relations between Seoul and Pyongyang in two years.

Ian Wallace, an NYPD officer, attempted to intercept the vehicle, by standing directly in front of it - ordering the driver to "stop". Instead of pulling over, though, the driver accelerated and swerved, hitting and then sideswiping the 26-year old officer.

While the police officers attempted to chase the vehicle down several highly-congested blocks with their weapons drawn, they were ultimately unable to catch the Mercedes after it side-swiped several cars to get through the traffic in a Grand Theft Auto V-style getaway.

The officer, who has been with the department for four and a half years, was rushed to Mount Sinai Hospital with minor injuries to his back and legs, but is expected to make a full recovery.

But the undeterred cop plants his hands on the car's bonnet, staying in front of the Benz as the vehicle then pushes him through a pedestrian crossing.
