NEW YORK CITY — Cops did not cuff an X-Men mutant this weekend. They just ended up with a set of his claws.
“Let’s start with the obvious,” wrote the NYPD Tuesday. “We did not arrest Wolverine.”
Bronx cops found the wolfish weapon — along with a machete, gun, and drugs — while checking out gunshots reported during a domestic dispute in a Villa Avenue apartment Saturday evening about 5:30 p.m., police said.
Anthony Ditta, 41, was arrested on weapon possession, assault, and reckless endangerment charges and Lytzaira Garcia, 37, was charged with weapon possession and assault, said police.
City records show Ditta and Garcia, whom jail records identify as Yelitza, were arraigned in Bronx Criminal Court Sunday and posted bail Monday.
The NYPD wrote the incident was proof, “no call our cops respond to is ever routine.”
