(Newser) – An off-duty NYPD officer was charged with multiple offenses including drunk driving after nearly mowing down a bunch of on-duty officers at a traffic stop. Police say Shieed Haniff hit two cars, causing minor injuries for occupants in both vehicles, then sped through a police stop as officers jumped out of the way, reports the New York Daily News.

After he finally came to a stop, he was charged with leaving the scene of an accident, DWI, reckless driving, and refusing to take a breath test. He was released without bail after his driver's license was revoked. Haniff, 30, is a seven-year veteran of the force and police say these are his first offenses, CBS reports.
