NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — New York City Police Commissioner William Bratton says he has “no problem whatsoever” with Mayor Bill de Blasio’s call to the NYPD after a political ally was arrested.
Questions have swirled around the call de Blasio made last week after he learned that Bishop Orlando Findlayter was arrested after allegedly driving with a suspended license. He also had two outstanding warrants for failing to answer to minor violations.
The mayor called a top police official, but not Bratton. De Blasio said he only inquired about the arrest and did not ask for Findlayter to be released.
