A man who allegedly choked a Williamsburg driver was arrested earlier this week, according to the NYPD. 

Cops cuffed 56-year-old Anthony Fielder in northern Brooklyn on Sept. 19, a week after the incident. At about 4:30 a.m. on Sept. 8, Fielder allegedly wrapped a shoelace around the neck of a 56-year-old man — who he did not know — as the victim drove his Ford van near the intersection of Skillman and Kingsland avenues in Williamsburg. 

As the two men struggled in the car, Fielder allegedly took control of the vehicle while the victim hung out of the driver’s side door. He struck several vehicles along the way, and eventually crashed the car into a fence at 300 Skillman Avenue and fled the scene.
