(Newser) – New York cops collared the city’s chief crane inspector on corruption charges today, but officials see no link to last week's fatal crane collapse. James Delayo, a 26-year Buildings Department veteran, is accused of taking money to issue fake crane appraisals and supplying cheat sheets for a city exam, the New York Daily News reports.
