NYPD: Officer Kicked Off Of Greyhound Bus Suspended

NEW YORK(CBSNewYork) — A drunk NYPD cop who was kicked off of a Greyhound bus in Philadelphia during the holidays has been suspended without pay, according to police.

Off-duty Sgt.Carlos Fabara had to be dragged off of the New york bound bus by Philadelphia police on December 27. The driver had Fabara removed from the bus for being too drunk.

Fellow passengers taped the incident and posted it to YouTube.

Geoffrey Parrish, who uploaded one of the videos to YouTube, wrote that the officer and a friend were “stumbling drunk and slurring” when they boarded the bus and “refused to get off when they were asked to wait outside with the other ticketed customers.”

Parrish added that the driver was already “on a short fuse” since a passenger had apparently been kicked off earlier for smoking cigarettes in the bathroom.

“It’s been about 15 minutes of, ‘Let’s go,’ ‘No, I paid for a ticket,’” a man in the video says.

In one video, the driver can be seen struggling with Fabara, trying to pull him out of his seat.

The video has received thousands of views.

Fabara faced no criminal charges over the boozy incident.

Fabara is reportedly the same police officer profiled in 2007 for having the most civilian complaints lodged against him in a year.

A video of the incident can be seen here.

    Well these are the types of officers you get when real testing is replaced by AFFIRMATIVE ACTION. NYPD better not fire him or they will get slapped with a racial discrimation suit.

    Isn’t affirmative action wonderful?

    Promote him to Lt………………….

    At the very least, the average person would have been charged with public drunkenness. The officer has obviously received preferential treatment. I hope that privilege doesn’t extend to being able to keep his job.


    This incident continues to highlight the obnoxious behavior and false sense of entitlement some younger officers unfortunately have. Their badge causes them to believe they have rights above that of the average tax paying New York citizen. New York has the finest and most dedicated police force in the nation and it is just a disgrace that WE the public have to continue to PAY the salaries of those who believe they are a members of a gang and a Police Commissioner and a Union President of whom most often tolerates and/ or strongly defends such public disrespect exhibited.

    Leave the guy alone he could have been dealing dugs

  7. The Facts says:

    The conduct depicted in the video does not rise to that which merits termination. The man was off duty and did not resist the police officer who removed him from the bus. He was not arrested and faces no criminal charges.

    An off-duty NYPD officer who was drunk…? Say it ain’t so…!
