WASHINGTON HEIGHTS — A veteran NYPD detective badly hurt last year when he was shot during a Miami robbery was arrested Monday for assaulting a fellow officer following a DWI stop in Washington Heights, police said.
Harold Thomas, 49, was off-duty when cops pulled his Cadillac Escalade over about 12:45 a.m., police sources said.
The 28-year veteran had words with one of the cops and a fight broke out, police said. Thomas, who has worked with the Joint Terrorism Task Force, was taken into custody, police said.
He was charged with second-degree assault, obstructing governmental administration, resisting arrest, driving while intoxicated and refusal to take a breath test, police said.
The arresting officer, whose identity was not released, suffered a knee injury, a source said. It was unclear if the cop was taken to a hospital.
Two men were arrested after the July 23 shooting.
