An off-duty drunk NYPD detective side-swiped a car and crashed into a hair Salon. Then his two off duty colleagues, also drunk, got him into their vehicle and fled the scene of the accident leaving the other car behind. All 3 were suspended without pay for 30 days and are being internally investigated.
Officer Vincent Mollini was celebrating his promotion to lieutenant with detectives Christopher Corulla and Franck Muirhead at the Rookies Sport Bar in Staten Island a few weeks ago. They left the bar drunk. Detective Corulla got in his car and as he was trying to leave, he damaged the car of a DJ working in a nearby bar before backing up into the Hair-Do or Dye Salon. Officer Mollini and Detective Muirhead then loaded Corulla in their vehicle and attempted to flee the scene of the accident. The DJ whose car was damaged chased them and caught them at a nearby red light. The officers told the DJ they were cops and that Corulla was sick from food poisoning. The DJ agreed to meet them again the following day to settle up. The accident wasn’t reported until Saturday morning. All 3 officers have been suspended without pay and are being investigated by the Force Investigation Division.
