An NYPD Detective is being sued for allegedly making bogus DWI arrests in order to earn extra overtime. The Daily News reports that Detective Darryl Schwartz has been sued at least three times and is facing a fourth suit, alleging that he arrested Bronx drivers who weren't drunk. One of the lawsuits that named Schwartz resulted in an $85,000 settlement from the city. Records that were eventually turned over to defense attorneys show that Detective Schwartz has a history of misconduct stretching back at least a decade, and that the NYPD has done little to discipline him.
