Another off duty NYPD cop arrested for firing gun

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - An off-duty cop was taken into custody after firing several shots into the air in New Rochelle early Saturday.

According to officials, Jamarie Flowers, 25, was arrested for allegedly firing the shots outside of his house on Lincoln Ave. following an altercation with several people.

He has been charged with reckless endangerment.

Flowers did not appear to be aiming the shots at anyone in particular.

The NYPD announced Sunday that Flowers has been suspended.

This is the fourth time in the past two weeks that an off-duty NYPD officer has been arrested for crimes that involved firing their guns.

Last week, an officer was arrested for randomly shooting a passenger in a passing vehicle six times; also last week, an officer was arrested in New Jersey for firing her gun during a fight with another woman; and the week before, an NYPD detective was arrested on a DWI charge when he shot his partner in the wrist.
