"I felt good about having it," the homeless man, who used multiple names, added.

The incident was captured by a photographer who reportedly recalled hearing the cop telling his partner, "No, it's OK — I've got several of them."

The officer did not give his name, but had a nameplate that read "Ramos," according to the New York Post.
