The official says the driver stopped the car in midtown Manhattan and called 911. He says Campbell jumped out of the car and ran away.

The official spoke to The Associated Press on condition on anonymity because an investigation was ongoing.

Police are looking to speak to Campbell. The driver is speaking to police at a precinct.
