Off-duty police officer involved in crash in Queens NY and charged with DWI

An off-duty police officer was allegedly drinking and driving when he crashed into a parked car in Queens NY early Tuesday morning December 29th, 2015 police have said.

Nelson Puente, 48, who’s assigned to Highway 3 in Queens, struck a parked car on Hillside Ave. in Jamaica Estates, between 188th and 189th Streets., police sources said.

He was driving down the street and then came to a stop. When the police arrived they found him slumped over the wheel, apparently drunk, with scratches on his head, sources said.
Puente refused to take a blood-alcohol test, police said.

The officer had his firearm on him at the time of his arrest, sources said.
