Cop drives drunk, injures woman, baby

JERSEY CITY — The off-duty police officer who crashed his Jeep into a car Tuesday, critically injuring a woman and her 2-year-old son, had a blood-alcohol level at least three times the legal limit, according to authorities.

Officer Kevin Freibott was suspended without pay and charged with driving while intoxicated and assault by auto in connection with the accident that occurred about 11 p.m. Tuesday on the Pulaski Skyway.

It left Ruth Zelaya, 37, and her son, Juan Carlos Zelaya, in critical condition at area hospitals. Source.

Suspended? Not fired?
