Police: 2 Off-Duty NYPD Cops Arrested In Unrelated Incidents For DWI, Other Charges

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Police say an off-duty cop is facing drunk driving charges for a crash that left his partner in a coma.

It happened Friday on the Bronx River Parkway near the Cross Bronx.

Authorities say Officer Rafael Casiano, who works in the East Village as a housing cop, lost control of his personal vehicle, hit a divider and flipped over.

He suffered back injuries but his passenger, who happened to be his partner, suffered serious head injuries.

Casiano is also facing a vehicular assault charge.

In a separate incident, another off-duty cop was arrested for DWI Saturday morning in the Bronx.

Police say Kleaburgh Carvajal is also charged with leaving the scene of an accident and refusing to take a breath test.

    I feel that any and all people who work 4 the city or gov should be held accountable 4 there actions and do the the same amount of time as any tax payer who breaks the law if anything they should do twice as much time . I can see it now one day a cop will go in to a public school an he will ask a ten old what would like 2 be when you grow up? and the kid answers a cop so i can drink and drive and maybe kill some one and not worry about it because i know that nothing will come of it nice picture isn’t

    The police officer who was injured will reciieve 50 million from the city and the two drunk drivers will get 6-7month paid vacations , and spend it visiting warmer places since nyc is so cold in the winter

      Sad but true. The corrupt animals will get drunk on our dime.

    The two off-duty cops associated with the wrong people. It doesn’t pay to hang out with Jim Beam, Johnny Walker, and Jack Daniel’s.

    Require residency? What are we serfs?

  5. Joe palau says:

    Bloomberg will end up promoting them both…
    It really is time for the city resident requirement for the NYPD
