An NYPD officer was suspended without pay as police investigate allegations he was drunk while on duty Thursday.
New York City officer Richard Evans was deemed “unfit for duty” by a sergeant while at work Thursday in a precinct in Bedford Park, the Bronx.
He was suspended without pay.
Before the suspension, Evans and his partner had responded to a report of domestic violence. A civilian at the scene complained that Evans was drunk.
When Evans returned to the precinct stationhouse, he was declared unfit for duty.
Police said he did not drive a police cruiser at any time while on duty Thursday.
Evans joined the NYPD in July 2001.
