A 43-year-old truck driver was arrested for allegedly punching City Councilman Danny Dromm and stealing his phone, which the freshman Democrat had used to photograph the man's truck blocking traffic outside of Dromm's Jackson Heights office this afternoon.

John Muriel was arrested around 12:30 this afternoon following a verbal dispute, according to an NYPD spokesman.

Dromm said he could not immediately comment on the incident.
