MORRIS HEIGHTS — An off-duty NYPD officer was arrested for drunken driving Friday morning after he slammed into several parked cars along West Tremont Avenue, police said.

Ramon Cuevas, 42, was driving through Morris Heights about 3:30 a.m. when he lost control of his vehicle and hit several vehicles, according to the NYPD.

He's been charged with driving while intoxicated.

It's unclear if Cuevas was injured in the accident or how long he had been on the force.

The incident marks at least the sixth time an NYPD cop has been arrested since the beginning of November, including a former Marine who was also driving drunk, an officer who keyed a man's car after a heated argument, and a jilted sergeant who viciously threatened his ex.
