An off-duty NYPD officer was arrested yesterday after driving down the street in the wrong direction and hitting a parked car while intoxicated near the Greenpoint/Williamsburg border.
Harry Sepulveda, 31, crashed into an unoccupied car at the corner of N. 12th Street and Wythe Avenue just after 2 a.m. on Nov. 4, according to police.
Sepulveda had been driving the wrong way down a one-way street prior to the crash. There were no injuries reported, police said.
He now faces charges of driving while ability impaired by alcohol, according to an NYPD spokesperson, along with refusing to take a breathalyzer test and driving the wrong direction on a one-way street.
Sepulveda is due back in Kings Criminal Court next month.
Amazing that they arrested a cop. I guess times have changed. Years ago I was stopped at a light in Williamsburg and was hit by a cop car traveling at a high rate of speed on a rain slick road and incurred much damage on the side of the car. When reporting it, the cops said no cop reported it so it didn’t happen.
Also yrs. ago I was hit by a hit and run drunk driver, not hurt but severe damage to car. The drunk stopped briefly and then took off. Bystanders said he reeked from alcohol. When I went to the station. The cops said the guy came in but they let him go (he had sobered up). I later found out he was a cop.
