There's something inherently dope about dunking over a cop car. It's not only a great feat of athleticism, but also some kind of symbolic intersection of community building and "fuck the police" vibes.

So this weekend, when Staten Island hooper Brian Hogan-Gary shut down the “Under the Lights” basketball tournament at the Berry Houses in Dongan Hills, people were like YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

It was basically the NYC street version of Blake Griffin's 2011 NBA Slam Dunk-winning slam, only better. Here's how the scene unfolded, per the NY Post:

The tournament’s dunk contest was in full effect when onlookers spotted the NYPD patrol car cruising onto the court with its lights and sirens flashing.

Little did they know that organizers with the tournament league had asked cops in the area if they would take part in the competition by letting a player dunk over a patrol car.

Brian Hogan-Gary, 20, was on the court with ball in hand as the officer made his way over to the hoop, parking the car directly under the basket.

Peep the video for yourself below.

UPDATE: Under the Lights now has the full video of the dunk. Check it out, below.
