Veteran detective fired for shooting partner while drunk

You might have a drinking problem if you accidentally shoot and wound your partner after a night of downing beers.

NYPD veteran detective Jay Poggi received the pink slip just as he was due to retire in a month. According to the New York Post, Poggi and his partner Matt Sullivan were going to track down a robbery in East New York, when the two instead felt like having an early retirement by downing 11 beers a piece.

After leaving a Queens diner in a haze, the 31 year veteran, Poggi, decided to show and tell his revolver to Sullivan.

 As bad as an idea as it was, it gets progressively worse. The gun goes off, striking Sullivan in the hand. The fun doesn't stop there. Poggie then drives his partner to a Jamaica hospital. Sullivan needed surgery, Poggi was charged with  a DWI after blowing what looked like a judge scoring a figure skater; .113.

As if police commissioner, William Bratton hasn't been busy enough as of later, he was recommended by a trial commisioner to lay Poggi off.

Poggi gets his license suspended but will collect his pension. He'll have time to share in AA circles about his one crazy night that led to his partner being shot, his career cut short and his license suspended.
