What began as a young woman taunting a man on the F-train in Greenwich Village devolved into a wild subway brawl that left four people in cuffs early Saturday, according to police video footage of the melee.
Danay Howard, 21, is seen in a video posted to Youtube on Saturday being egged on by friends as she taunts Jorge Pena, 25, over his style sense on the uptown bound F train near W. 4th St. shortly before 5 a.m., police said.
“You got a bum ass eight ball jacket that came out in 1990,” Howard said to Pena before telling him to “just get your money up, simple.”
Eventually, the man filming the incident caught Howard and her cohorts attention. The three women jump up from their seat and knock the phone from his hands twice.
Howard and Pena were arrested at the W. 4th St. subway station around 5 a.m. along with Kevin Gil, 21, and Shanique Campbell, 20, who were apparently supporting Howard and had jumped into the melee after the slap, police said.
Pena, Gil, and Campbell were charged with misdemeanor assault and disorderly conduct, police said.
Howard was charged with felony assault for using a weapon – the shoe – in the attack.
The footage uploaded to YouTube with the title “Man smacks the soul out of girl on the NY Subway” has more than 600,000 views, quickly becoming the slap heard around the internet.
