Now he’s wrestling with a suspension.
An off-duty cop was found passed out drunk outside the Barclays Center with a loaded gun in plain sight after watching a World Wrestling Entertainment event, police sources said Tuesday.
NYPD Officer Mark Kelly, of the 101st Precinct in Far Rockaway, Queens, was spotted down for the count on a sidewalk in front of the Brooklyn arena at 11:30 p.m. Monday, according to police sources.
Kelly was lying on the street at Fourth Avenue and Atlantic Avenue with a gun visible in his waistband when a passer-by called 911, saying he may be a cop, according to the sources.
Cops believe he had just come from WWE’s Monday Night Raw at the Barclays Center.
Kelly later had a rumble with his bosses.
He was suspended for the move on Tuesday, according to police spokeswoman Sgt. Jessica McRorie.
“The incident is under internal review,” she added.
Kelly was taken by ambulance to Methodist Hospital to dry out, according to police sources.
He could not be reached for comment.
The officer, who made $58,676 in 2015, will not collect his paycheck while he is on suspension.
One police source, who wished to remain anonymous, slammed the offending cop as a rotten apple.
“Who is this guy, getting himself so inebriated where he lost control of himself and his ability to secure his firearm?” the source questioned. “A police officer is on duty at all times. This guy obviously can’t control himself. He needs to get professional help.
“The cops have their hands filled right now. The last thing they need is a drunken cop with his gun hanging out,” the source added. “He’s just making the rest of us look awful.”
