Police cuff Bronx man for ‘stealing’ his own car 

WHAT: While preparing to drive his daughters to school, Jamieson Prince, 43, was surrounded by New York City cops and arrested in handcuffs for “stealing” his own SUV — even though he was carrying proof of ownership.

WHY: Prince’s 23-year-old son had borrowed the GMC Yukon and was arrested for allegedly fleeing a Harlem crash. Police seized the vehicle and promptly “lost” it, until Prince saw it parked on the street four months later and drove home.

WHAT’S HAPPENING NEXT: Charges against Prince for “removing police property without permission” have been dropped. However, he is now suing the NYPD for $1 million. “I just want my daughters to know their father didn’t break the law,” he said.
