JERICHO - A man is accused of beating a passenger in his car and then abandoning her on the side of the Long Island Expressway in Jericho.

Police say Daniel Toone, of Yonkers, got into an argument with the woman on Tuesday. He allegedly punched her, broke her glasses and injured her eye.

Toone then pulled over, physically kicked her out of the car, and stole her money and phone before driving off, police say. The relationship between Toone and the woman is unclear.

Toone was arrested yesterday at his Yonkers home. Police say he injured two officers as he was taken into custody.
