An off-duty NYPD cop was busted for allegedly biting his wife as she brawled with his lover in the Bronx, police said Saturday.
You know this has to be a good story.
Jose Prada, 38, was inside his Fordham apartment at about 9:30 p.m. Friday when his wife got into a fight with another woman he was seeing, officials said. It was not immediately clear why the three were in the same apartment.
I think we can all make a prtty good guess.
The officer tried to break up the brawl — and bit his wife on the hand during the scuffle, according to authorities. That always works to calm down a situation.
Prada, who according to online records makes $59,401 annually with the NYPD, was arrested and charged with assault.
He has been a cop since 2015, records show.
“They’re fighting all the time here in the lobby, screaming at each other,” the building’s security guard told The Post. “Cops have been called multiple times to the apartment.”
But other workers said they were a “quiet family.”
“He’s a very nice person, so polite,” said a maintenance man who identified himself as Enrique. “He picks up his kids from school and everything.”
Oh he picks up his kids from school? Some one get me the form to nominate some one for the noble peace price and sainthood.
“They’re a nice family,” echoed one neighbor. “I just hope they’re OK for the sake of their kids.”
Prada’s wife declined to comment as she left the building Saturday alongside detectives.
Prada was awaiting arraignment in Bronx Criminal Court.
