NEW YORK (1010 WINS/ WCBS 880 / CBS 2) — Former NYPD officer Andrew Kelly was cuffed and taken away Friday after a delay and unexpected development in his sentencing for striking and killing a Brooklyn woman while driving drunk.

He had pleaded guilty to vehicular manslaughter.

He surrendered on Friday to begin serving his three month prison sentence.

His formal sentencing will take place Oct. 8.

He’s charged in the death of Vionique Valnord, who was waiting for a cab in Mill Basin last year when she was struck and killed. Police that responded to the crash attempted to sober Kelly up before administering any tests.

Valnord’s family filed a lawsuit against the NYPD for the attempted cover-up, although they say they have forgiven Kelly.
