He got done in by his dipstick.

Cops in New York City were able to bust the alleged subway brake-yanker this week thanks to a cellphone-wielding straphanger — who caught the young man on camera “with his penis exposed” in a picture that was later used to identify him, prosecutors said Friday.

The “informant” had been minding their business on the C train platform at West 14th Street and Eighth Avenue when Isaiah Thompson, 23, came whizzing by on the back of a northbound train, according to the court complaint.

They snapped a photo of Thompson’s exposed unit and off he went — back into the subway tunnels of NYC to ruin another person’s day, prosecutors allege.

MAN ACCUSED IN MULTIPLE SUBWAY BRAKE-PULLING INCIDENTS ARRESTED, OFFICIALS SAY

The straphanger turned the pic in to police, who then used it to identify the alleged transit troublemaker a week later. Their encounter with Thompson allegedly went down on May 16.

On May 21, the subway perv was caught on surveillance video on the outside of a northbound 2 train — moments before its emergency brake was pulled at the same exact station where Thompson was caught exposing himself the week before, the complaint says.

Two days later, Sgt. Jovanny Calderon — of Transit District 30 — watched the video, compared it to the May 16 photo of Thompson, and realized they had the same guy, according to prosecutors.

Cops took Thompson into custody late Thursday and he allegedly confessed to being both the brake-yanker and the penis perp. He was charged in Manhattan criminal court on Friday with criminal tampering, reckless endangerment and public lewdness.

Idaho police captured a man Friday afternoon suspected of shooting and killing a motorist in northern Utah earlier this week after a two-day manhunt.

Officers arrested 45-year-old Jonathan Llana about 3:15 p.m. in an area of southern Idaho outside of Pocatello about 10 miles (16 kilometers) from where the suspect crashed his car into a canal Wednesday night after a police pursuit, according to news releases from Idaho State Police and the Utah Highway Patrol. LLana had broken into a house in the area and stolen an all-terrain vehicle, they said. No officers or residents were injured.

The Los Angeles man is charged with murder and attempted murder in connection with the Wednesday night shooting that killed Dennis Gwyther, 50, of Salt Lake City and injured Gwyther’s passenger.

The victim’s husband, Matt Gwyther, said in a statement he wants “swift justice” for the suspect and celebrated Llana’s arrest on his Facebook account .

Matt Gwyther said in a Facebook post that he and Dennis Gwyther married on Dec. 10, 2013, the day gay marriage was legalized in Utah. He said Dennis Gwyther was the “love of his life” who enjoyed being the “bonus dad” to his two teenage children and enjoyed having fun and laughing.

He said Dennis Gwyther loved kidding around and playing jokes and was like a “kid inside an adult body.” He said he loved gadgets and was a genius with technology, loved writing and did sound and lighting for clubs in Salt Lake City.

Dennis Gwyther was also a strong advocate for LGBTQ rights, his husband said.

Utah officials said the two victims were heading toward Idaho on Interstate 84 in northern Utah when the suspect fired multiple rounds at their vehicle. Idaho troopers chased Llana’s vehicle until it crashed into a canal in southern Idaho. Llana then fled on foot, police said.

The motive of the shooting is still unknown, Utah Highway Patrol Sgt. Nick Street said.

Gwyther worked as a flight attendant for SkyWest Airlines, company spokesman Wes Horrocks said. The company is shocked and saddened by the killing, Horrocks said.

Investigators say they’ve arrested a 19-year-old man who they say drove away after his pickup truck struck and killed an 8-year-old girl at a school bus stop in southwest Florida.

Logan Tyler Heatherington was arrested Thursday, almost two months after the death of Layla Aiken . He was charged with leaving the scene of a fatal crash and vehicular homicide.

The News-Press reports Cape Coral police verified Heatherington was the driver by reviewing hours of surveillance footage that showed him getting into the red Dodge Ram truck, leaving his house and driving to work. They received video showing the truck leaving the crash scene in the early morning darkness of March 25.

Authorities say Layla’s twin younger brothers witnessed the crash.

Jail records don’t list a lawyer for Heatherington.

Police in Idaho were searching Thursday near a small town for a man suspected of shooting and killing a motorist along a desolate stretch of interstate highway in Utah.

Jonathan Llana, 45, of Los Angeles was being sought near Burley after crashing his car during a chase by authorities, Idaho State Police said, describing him as armed and dangerous.

Officials said they didn’t know a motive for the shooting Wednesday night on a stretch of Interstate 84 called Rattlesnake Pass in northern Utah.

Victim Dennis Gwyther of Salt Lake City and a passenger were traveling in a Range Rover from Salt Lake City to Boise, Idaho, for work, Utah State Bureau of Investigation Lt. Ryan Van Fleet said,

Llana owns a silver Volkswagen Jetta that Idaho troopers pursued until it crashed into a canal along Interstate 86, Van Fleet said.

The driver ran and authorities were searching for him Thursday, with the assistance of a helicopter, officials said.

“We think he’s still out there … running through the fields,” Van Fleet said during a news conference in Salt Lake City. “We really think we’re getting close on this.”

Llana was described as 5 feet 10 inches (1.8 meters) tall, weighing about 150 pounds (68 kilograms), with black hair and brown eyes.

Van Fleet said there was no indication the two drivers had interacted before the Wednesday shooting.

The attack occurred after the Jetta and Range Rover cleared a traffic slowdown that resulted when two big rigs were side by side as one passed the other, Van Fleet said.

The passenger in the Range Rover called 911 to report the shooting and provided a description of the Jetta, which had a unique antennae, according to the Utah Department of Public Safety.

Another motorist — an emergency medical technician — stopped to help and confirmed the driver had died. The injured passenger was taken to a hospital.

A chartered jet that ran off a runway and into a river at a Florida military base earlier this month touched down to the right of the runway’s centerline, returned to the centerline and then veered again to the right.

The veering of the plane during landing was among new details released Thursday by the National Transportation Safety Board, which is investigating why the plane ended up in the St. Johns River at Naval Air Station Jacksonville.

The NTSB says the Miami Air flight encountered heavy rain as it began descent and switched to a different runway where the weather seemed better.

The landing gear separated from the plane during landing and the plane stopped in less than 5 feet (1.5 meters) of water.

No one was seriously injured.
