It was Bravest versus Strongest.
A city sanitation worker was arrested after getting into a fight with an off-duty firefighter over a parking spot, cops said.
The incident, which occurred just before 5 p.m. Saturday in Bedford-Stuyvesant, escalated into a physical encounter when the firefighter told 47-year-old Stater Sheldon to move his car from a no-standing zone, according to police.
Sheldon flew off the handle when the firefighter yelled “move your car,” police said.
The firefighter suffered a bruise to his hip, cops said.
Sheldon was arrested shortly after the encounter on charges of assault, assault of a firefighter, criminal possession of a weapon and obstruction, according to the NYPD. The weapon police were referring to was not immediately clear.
The Department of Sanitation did not return a call for comment.
No other information was released.
