Ellen Barkin

I Was Shoved by an NYPD Officer

for No Reason!

Actress Ellen Barkin went on a Twitter rampage early this morning after she claims she was pushed by an NYPD officer just for walking down the street ... and the incident was shot on video.

Barkin -- perhaps best known for her roles in "Sea of Love" and "Switch" -- claimed to have seen people being arrested for no reason, as the cops dealt with Occupy Wall Street protestors in the area. 

Barkin then had a run-in with an officer of her own, which she described by saying, "Just threatened on my street by NYPD,cop shoved me,both hands,onto sidewalk..Is it a crime 2 stand in the street in NY?WTF is going on here?"

Barkin was with her rumored boyfriend, director Sam Levinson, who caught the incident on video.

We reached out to the local police precinct, who said they would review the video. So far, no word back.

Something out of NOTHING. Shoved with 2 hands, I didn't see it in the video provided. You can't get a "love tap" for not doing what the officer told you to do like the rest of us. Tough S***! Get over yourself.

The answer to Ellen's question is YES it is a crime to stand in the street of NYC. What a loser!

The last I heard, you are not supposed to stand in the street in NY! Is she really that dim witted or is this another case of liberals wanting rules and laws to apply only when they want them applied.

When she sobers up she'll be embarassed....hopefully. Love them or hate them cops have better things to do than guide old white ladies out of the street. Ellen...just go home sweetie.

She has a rare command of the idiom. Someone ought to wash her filthy mouth out with soap. If I was the cop, I'd have given her something to cry about.

Ellen, get the hell off twitter! Why do celebrities have to rush to twit-**** to scream about things? Have that kind of problem, call a lawyer. Lucky your useless boyfriend was there to "tape" it. LOL

Is it a crime 2 stand in the street in NY? Yes it is if the cops told everyone to get out of the street.

Unbelievable!! Ellen, you were NOT shoved, and in fact you told the officer "get your Mother F--ing hands off of me". Respect the police you idiot and learn to tell the truth! You're embarrassing!!

It looked like the Police Officer guided her on to the sidewalk with ONE (1) hand. Hardly a shove with two hands.
Quit making a mountain out of a mole hill.
