It's true. There are over 30,000 officers in the New York Police Department, and at least one of them sometimes consumes alcoholic beverages.

OP, thank you for bringing this vital information to our attention.

You couldn't find a better daily "trash a cop" story than that?

The real horrors of this will be when we find out what form of alcohol he drank prior to his arrest.

This may have been an isolated incident or the man has a serious drinking problem. Unlike most everyone on the C_D site, he will lose his job and his pension. Once again, right or wrong, he has to abide my a higher moral standard than the standard citizen.

Don't get me wrong, I'm sure he fully knew the consequences should he get caught and his punishment would be just. Keep in mind, it's not just him whose life is ruined here due to the severity of what he faces. His whole family is now going to suffer much worse than yours would in a similar circumstance. I somehow don't take any joy out of the fact that he received a DUI.

This must make all you cop-haters ecstatic.

That's horribly sad. The young rookies often have this cowboy/ invincible mentality. I've seen it before and have seen a couple on John's department pushed out because of it. Yep they really are human beings behind the uniform. It was horribly irresponsible on his part to be behind the wheel after a night out with the boys. As for the haters that think all cops are out to get them and that they get away with everything, well lets not burst their paranoid one size fits all ignorant bubble. They're happy in their dark place.

When people in charge of enforcing drunk driving laws get caught allegedly driving drunk, its going to make headlines.

Am I a "hater" of the "Do what I say, not what I do." types? Yep.

Congrats to the one that caught him who didn't let him go just because.
