St. Patrick's Day weekend was a pretty bad one for the NYPD, as 6 employees have been arrested since Friday. Four of them were officers, including a Peeping Tom who was spying on his 21-year-old female neighbor. Here's a roundup of the charges, which range from DWI to weapons and drug possession:
Traffic Enforcement Agent Denise Johnson, 37, was arrested on Friday in the Bronx after police found stolen belongings and fake guns in her Dodge Charger. Police say her 16-year-old son and an accomplice were involved in five robberiesâ€”they were arrested after trying to sell some stolen merchandise at a pawn shop, and Johnson was arrested when she refused to cooperate with investigators and they searched her car.
On Saturday night, an administrative aide for the NYPD was arrested in the Bronx for criminal possession of a controlled substance. A source tells DNAinfo that Curline Brown, 55, was busted for marijuana possession, but that hasn't been officially confirmed.
Joseph King, a 28-year-old NYPD officer, was charged with DWI, Leaving the Scene of an Accident, and Refusal to Take Breath Test. Police say King had gotten into an accident on the BQE in Queens around 4:30 a.m. on Sunday. After allegedly fleeing the scene and then being pulled over, he refused to take a breath test. It's unclear if there were any injuries as result of the crash.
At 6 a.m. on St. Paddy's Day, Dennis Munge, 32, was charged with DWI in Jackson Heights, Queens.
And at 1:30 a.m. this morning, NYPD Detective Washington Mosquera, 37, was charged with DWI in Brooklyn
Commanding officers need to tell these weekend warriors to calm it down.
