An 18-year-old man suffered a knee injury.
The chaos unfolded outside the NYPD’s 6th Precinct, where about 25 people gathered to demand the firing of a sergeant who works in the command, sources said.
At about 10:30 p.m., the BMW driver pulled up and honked at the protesters, who were blocking the road on West 10th Street near Bleecker Street, sources said.
The protesters swarmed the vehicle — and police responded to the fracas — before the driver hit the gas and plowed into the crowd, sources said.
A demonstrator and police officer were hit and suffered injuries, police and sources said.
Police gave chase and stopped the driver a few blocks away on Grove Street, the NYPD said.
Police said the driver, identified as 18-year-old Justin Burgos, was frustrated because the road was blocked.
He was later arrested on several charges, including reckless endangerment and leaving the scene of an accident.
