A veteran New York State trooper was arrested for an alleged drunken-driving accident early this morning.

According to Newburgh police, Christopher Cuneo was off duty and behind the wheel of a 2006 Chrysler sedan when he rear-ended another car on Route 17K in Orange County shortly after midnight.

State police say Cuneo is a 12-year veteran of the department. They say he has not been suspended from his duty, but that an internal affairs investigation is currently under way.
