From the Daily News:
The Buildings Department's top enforcer came to the rescue of a woman being beaten by her deranged husband on a Queens highway Wednesday.
Deputy Commissioner Eugene Corcoran was driving by as Ameer Khairullah, 54, attacked his wife, Bebe, and commandeered her SUV on the Grand Central Parkway in Jamaica Hills about 7:30 a.m. officials said.
"He punched the wife, dragged her out of the vehicle," said a police source. "And the car rolls over her leg and breaks it."
Corcoran stopped his Ford Explorer in the center lane and hopped out. Khairullah's 2000 Toyota 4Runner then rear-ended Corcoran's vehicle.
"That sent him flying over the guardrail," Buildings Department spokesman Tony Sclafani said. Corcoran, hired in May as the agency's head of enforcement, wasn't down long. "He gets up, walks toward the vehicle and confronts the suspect and subdues him," Sclafani said.
A former U.S. marshal, Corcoran pinned Khairullah to the ground while Firefighter Edward Tucker pulled up to lend a hand.
Tucker - who completes training today to become a fire marshal - handed Corcoran a pair of cuffs until cops arrived, FDNY spokesman Steve Ritea said.
