An off-duty cop was arrested after getting into a violent road rage dispute early this morning near the Brooklyn/Queens border.

According to police, at around 2 a.m. police officer Emel Lyndl Alegre, 34, was driving on the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway when he got into a dispute with a 42-year-old male driver.

Both drivers eventually pulled over at Metropolitan Avenue, where authorities say that Alegre produced a knife.

Alegre then punched the victim and slashed him with the knife. The victim suffered a slash to the back of the head and refused medical attention at the scene.

Officers arrested Alegre shortly after the attack on Metropolitan Avenue. He was charged with assault, menacing and criminal possession of a weapon.
