An Off-Duty Bushwick Cop Was Arrested in His Own Precinct For Drunk Driving

...and driving the wrong way.

An off-duty NYPD officer was arrested for drunk driving this weekend after he crashed into a police car parked in Bushwick — the same neighborhood he patrols, cops say.

Miguel Martinez, 38, hit the empty police car at around 2:20 a.m. on Sunday. Although authorities couldn't say exactly where the accident happened, Martinez was pulled over near the intersection of Cypress and Willoughby Avenues in Ridgewood.

The Bushwick cop was charged in his own precinct with driving while intoxicated, driving the wrong way, and refusal to take a breathalyzer test, police said. Martinez is an 11-year veteran of the police force.
