Patrick Cherry, NYPD Detective Who Abused Uber Driver, Loses Gun, Badge

By    |   Thursday, 02 Apr 2015 12:13 PM

NYPD Detective Patrick Cherry verbally abused an Uber driver on Monday, and was soon stripped of his badge and gun after passengers submitted a video of the incident along with a formal complaint.

The video was also posted online, and quickly went viral, garnering attention from both local and national press.

"No good cop should watch that video without a wince. Because all good cops know that officer just made their jobs a little bit harder," Commissioner Bill Bratton said at a Wednesday press conference, the New York Post reported.

"In that kind of encounter, anger like that is unacceptable. In any encounter, discourtesy and obscene language like that is unacceptable. That officer’s behavior reflected poorly on everyone who wears our uniform."

Department officials said that Cherry has now lost his place on the department’s elite Joint Terrorism Task Force, and will do desk duty before being transferred out.

The Uber driver, who goes by "Sanjay Seth" on Twitter, said on the social network that he was thankful to the department for processing his complaint promptly.
