New York - Brooklyn Man Claims DUI Frame Job After NYPD Cops Run Stop Sign And Broadside His Car
Brooklyn, NY - A 31 year-old Brooklyn man is claiming that he was fraudulently charged with a DUI after an SUV carrying five NYPD officers ran a stop sign and broadsided his car in April.
NYDAILYNEWS.com (http://nydn.us/1MibJCF) reports in an EXCLUSIVE that prosecutors from Brooklyn DA Kenneth Thompson’s office moved to dismiss DUI charges against Oliver Wiggins last week after the tox-screen from blood tests taken voluntarily by Wiggins proved zero traces of alcohol and drugs.
Wiggins contends that the DUI charge was trumped up by embarrassed cops on the scene after the police-issued SUV they were driving, without the use of sirens or flashing lights, ran the stop sign at Glenwood Rd. and E. 43rd St. at 1:30 a.m. in Flatbush on April 19.
Due to blatant inconsistencies in official police reports filed by both cops at the scene and the NYPD Highway Division, Mr. Wiggins’ attorney has fired off a letter to DA Kenneth Thompson’s office requesting an official investigation into the matter.
