“Non-Stop” star LIAM NEESON abruptly stopped his jog though Manhattan’s Central Park when a woman shouted that teenage boys were stoning a dog to death!
Said an eyewitness: “Abruptly changing direction, Liam charged down a path and confronted three gangbanger wannabe types who were throwing rocks at a stray they’d cornered up against a trash bin. Liam yelled that they’d better stop or he’d knock the crap out of them – but the punks just swaggered up and warned him to mind his own business. In a fury, he warned them to back off fast – or else!”
Suddenly, the boys retreated as the ringleader told Liam: “Yeah, okay, man…we’re out of here!” Happy he’d backed the creeps off and saved the cowering pooch, Liam was feeling pretty darn good about himself – until he turned and saw a police officer pulling up behind him on a bike.
“Turns out it was the sight of the approaching cop that had spooked the boys,” said My SpyWitness. “Liam just shook his head and approached the shivering dog, stroking it while the policeman assessed its injuries – then thanked the star and told him: ‘I’ll take it from here, sir!’ ”
