Judge declares mistrial in parking punch trial

A judge has declared a mistrial in the case against a man accused of punching a woman during a fight over a parking space.

Jurors were not able to reach a unanimous verdict.

Lana Rosas was brutally beaten over an East Village parking spot in February.

Prosecutors say Oscar Fuller hit her when he became enraged over her attempt to save a space for a pal.

His lawyer said prosecutors didn't prove Fuller meant to cause serious injury, as the assault charge required.

No word yet if prosecutors will ask for a new trial.
