New York state Sen. Bill Perkins, D-Harlem, told The New York Times he reported the incident after hearing complaints about police officers driving around the neighborhood with the doll's head on a rear antenna.
Perkins said he was told the doll was stuffed in the trunk of the car after someone noticed it but that the officers told him they didn't know where it was, the Times said.
Police Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly said at a news briefing also that officers denied knowing where the doll's head was.
