I wonder if a cop can have a DWI and still be a cop in New York. Truck drivers can't.
The wreck happened as NYPD officer Raphael Ospina, 27, a cop since 2004, was heading east on 57th Street. He collided with a private garbage truck that was heading in the opposite direction and making a left turn onto Fifth Avenue south.So if the guy driving the garbage truck (he was uninjured) had been drunk, he would be out of work. I wonder if one of New York's finest will be looking for a job, or if it is just "one of those things." [Via Bad Cop, No Donut! - This makes the cops behaving badly thing too easy!]
Ospina's Chrysler 300 sedan, with two passengers inside, jumped a curb and hit the famous façade of the legendary jewelry store.
