Bronx NYPD officer suspended, accused of being drunk on duty

An NYPD officer was suspended without pay as police investigate allegations he was drunk while on duty Thursday.

New York City officer Richard Evans was deemed "unfit for duty" by a sergeant while at work Thursday in a precinct in Bedford Park, the Bronx.

He was suspended without pay.

Before the suspension, Evans and his partner had responded to a report of domestic violence. A civilian at the scene complained that Evans was drunk.

When Evans returned to the precinct stationhouse, he was declared unfit for duty.

Police said he did not drive a police cruiser at any time while on duty Thursday.

Evans joined the NYPD in July 2001.
