Off-Duty Cop Charged with DWI in NY

NYPD Detective James O’Connell was arrested for suspicion of driving while intoxicated in Queens. He was off-duty at the time of his early Friday arrest.

O’Connell is the third NYPD officer to be charged with drunk driving in the New York City area since September. Officer Kevin Spellman pleaded guilty to fatally hitting a woman while driving impaired in the Bronx. Officer Andrew Kelly was also involved with a fatal traffic accident while suspected of driving drunk. He has entered a not guilty plea. Both officers were suspended from duty.

The president of the Detective’s Endowment Association was unavailable for comment on O’Connell’s NY DWI.
