Philadelphia cop accused of helping girlfriend steal her brother’s Maltese dog from Brooklyn home

A Philadelphia cop in full uniform went to Brooklyn to help his girlfriend steal her brother’s Maltese dog — and when the intimidation didn’t work, he resorted to a chokehold, authorities said.

Angel Lopez, 30 — clad in his blue uniform, complete with shield, cuffs and gun — was joined by his girlfriend as they paid her brother a visit in his Bushwick bedroom at 5:30 a.m. Thursday, according to a complaint in Brooklyn Criminal Court.

“Where is the dog? I want the dog!” Lopez bellowed, shoving the man several times, the complaint says.

He then grabbed his belt and postured, allegedly telling the man: “If you hit me, I am going to arrest you for assaulting an officer.”
