NEW YORK — An NYPD detective was arrested and charged with driving under the influence after shooting his partner in the wrist.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Detective Jay Poggi was in a parked, unmarked police vehicle with his partner, Detective Matthew Sullivan, when the incident occurred. Both were on-duty.
Detective Poggi showed his partner his service weapon — a Smith & Wesson revolver — when the gun discharged and struck Detective Sullivan in the wrist.
Police administered an alcohol test at the hospital and charged Poggi with driving while intoxicated. Poggi registered a 0.113. He appeared in Queens Criminal court and did not enter a plea. He was subsequently released pending a court hearing June 16, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Don't count on it - his partner was okey-dokey with him being drunk off his ass armed on duty. Until he got shot.

He'll be back on duty in 3 months, the union will see to it. After the usual stint in rehab of course. - See more at: www.abovetopsecret.com...
Don't think so-he is toast-as he should be. The discharging of the weapon is a felony-the rest he could slide on.
