NYPD Investigates Suspicious Projectile
Maybe it was "terror." Or something even more devious.
Cops scoured a Brooklyn housing project yesterday looking for the person who threw a chocolate doughnut near Mayor Bloomberg.
Bloomberg was at the Wyckoff Gardens and Gowanus Houses in Boerum Hill to announce the installation of new security cameras when someone from a window above threw the pastry projectile - almost hitting Hizzoner's longtime girlfriend Diana Taylor, who was standing nearby.
So far, police said they have no leads.
"Inquiries were made," NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said. "Nothing was ascertained with certainty, but there is no indication it was directed at the mayor. It may have just been tossed out the window or dropped."
Confidential sources are hinting that, with the choice of projectile, the NYPD Internal Affairs division may need to become involved in the investigation.
