A New York City police captain has been arrested and charged, reportedly with punching his police sergeant girlfriend so hard that she lost consciousness.
Police said that they traced a ransom call to a home in Springfield Gardens, Queens. When officers showed up on Saturday, 17-year veteran Ondre Johnson came out the front door.
The investigation surrounds the availability of a neighbor’s security camera video that captured the incident. Authorities will now look to see why police may have ignored the video and continued to canvass the area for the alleged attacker instead.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg says that while “there seems to be a lot of evidence” that police officers have been fixing traffic tickets, he believes it’s a problem that’s already been corrected.
