QUEENS, NEW YORK – An off-duty police officer was arrested for allegedly driving while intoxicated after striking a parked car early Wednesday, the NYPD reported.
She was the third NYPD officer to be arrested in four days.
Police Officer Salisha Alirasul, 34, refused to take a breath test and was taken into custody about 2:15 a.m., a police spokesman said.
The collision took place within the 103rd Precinct, which includes Jamaica, Hollis and Lakewood, but the spokesman did not provide an exact location.
Alirasul sustained minor injuries and was treated at Jamaica Hospital.
Alirasul’s arrest occurred one day after Police Officer Kofi Nsafoah, 36, was arrested in Brooklyn for allegedly choking his wife during a dispute.
On Sunday, Police Officer Brayan Terrazas, 26, was arrested in Queens for allegedly driving while intoxicated.
Both were off-duty when the incidents reportedly occurred.
