NEW ROCHELLE - An off-duty NYPD officer is the second officer in less than a week to get in trouble for allegedly firing his weapon in Westchester.

New Rochelle police say Officer Jamarie Flowers, 25, was involved in an argument in front of the Carrington Arms apartment complex at 33 Lincoln Ave. just after 1 a.m. Investigators say Flowers fired several rounds from his handgun into the air during the argument.

New Rochelle Police Capt. Joseph Schaller says Flowers used a semi-automatic personal handgun that was not his service weapon.

"As the dispute concluded, he pulled out a gun and let several rounds go into the air," says Schaller.

Flowers was arrested in his apartment at the complex and was charged with reckless endangerment.

No one was injured and there was no property damage.

Flowers was released on $10,000 bail. He has also been suspended from the NYPD without pay.

He is due back in court June 2.

Last Tuesday, Officer Brendan Cronin, 27, allegedly fired shots from his parked car and hit a man at a stoplight with six bullets.

The victim is recovering and Cronin was charged with felony assault.
