NYPD cop acquitted for DWI sues arresting officer for $2M

An NYPD detective who was busted for DWI after falling asleep at a red light has slapped the officers who arrested him with a $2 million lawsuit, claiming they lied about the incident so they could make the arrest.

 

Joseph Oquendo claims that he began dozing in his BMW at a Brooklyn intersection around 6 a.m. after a night out with some pals in May 2011 but had sobered up after having three drinks earlier in the evening, according to the federal court suit.
