Following Another Water Incident...

•, CBSNewYork

New video surfaced Tuesday evening of more NYPD officers being doused with water.

The most recent incident in Queens has compelled lawmakers to announce a new bill that cracks down on anyone who disrespects the badge, CBS2's Natalie Duddridge reported.

There have been at least four separate cases in recent weeks of citizens showing contempt for officers, prompting some fed-up lawmakers to say enough is enough. They want anyone who does it to go to jail.

Police are looking for the man who was captured on video blatantly tossing bottled water at two NYPD traffic enforcement agents in Queens, as he records it on his cellphone. The incident happened last weekend at 86th Street and Jamaica Avenue.

"That is very disrespectful," one New Yorker told Duddridge.

"He's just walking away thinking it's all right to do that and it's not right to do that to anybody, not just the cops," Woodhaven resident Jose Cancela added.
