NEW YORK --
An NYPD officer injured in the line of duty is home Monday, released from the hospital after having his leg amputated. NYPD officers lined up and clapped as officer Eric Grimes left Kings County Hospital on crutches. Grimes was making an arrest two weeks ago when he was hit by a car that jumped a curb in the Flatlands section.
Grimes was choked up by the show of support from his colleagues. He reportedly told Police Commissioner Ray Kelly that he wants to return to work, following his rehabilitation.
Kelly called Grimes an inspiration to the entire department.
