Uber Driver To Testify In Front Of Civilian Complaint Review Board After NYPD Detective’s Tirade

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The Civilian Complaint Review Board is expected to hear from an Uber driver Wednesday after video surfaced of a NYPD detective berating him.

CBS2 has confirmed the officer in the video is Patrick Cherry. Sources say the detective is part of the NYPD’s intelligence unit.

In a statement to CBS This Morning, the NYPD said the incident was being reviewed internally and the detective was on duty at the time of the incident.

Based on the board’s findings, Cherry could face disciplinary action.

Sanjay Seth, a passenger in the Uber cab, recorded the traffic stop on the West Side Highway near 14th Street Tuesday afternoon and posted it to YouTube.

The tongue lashing lasted for several minutes, which is said to have been spurred by the Uber driver honking at the officer for not using his blinker and preventing him from getting a parking spot.

“Stop it with your mouth. Stop it with your: ‘For what sir, for what sir.’ Stop it with that bulls**t, and realize there are three vehicle traffic violations that you committed, OK?” the detective says. “Do you understand me? I don’t know what f***ing planet you think you’re on right now.”

Warning: Strong Language

Mayor Bill de Blasio said Tuesday there should be no tolerance for such behavior among police.

“There’s just no place for any public servant to use discriminatory or negative language,” the mayor said. “Again, I’m saying that not having seen the nuances, not having seen the exact language, but I’ll state the obvious principle.”

As CBS2’s Janelle Burrell reported, Detectives’ Endowment Association President Michael Palladino said Cherry’s rant is a result of stress.

He said Cherry was on his way to visit a colleague in the hospital when the encounter happened.

“The past five days have been emotionally draining for the members of the JTTF dealing with their fellow detective’s health,” Palladino said in a statement. “Despite what some people think, cops have feelings, too.”

But Seth is heard sympathizing with the driver.

“That’s crazy, that’s really inappropriate,” he said.

Seth is expected to give his account to investigators as well.

According to Uber, the driver did not want to comment. But company spokesman Matt Wing issued a statement: “The behavior in the video is wrong and unacceptable and we appreciate the NYPD investigating the incident. We are in touch with our driver-partner who was subjected to this terrible experience and will continue to provide any support he needs.”

Reports: Mets, Juan Lagares Closing In On 4-Year Contract Extension

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — According to multiple reports, the Mets are closing in on a four-year contract extension with center fielder Juan Lagares.

The deal is reportedly for $23 million.

Lagares, 26, is one of the best defensive center fielders in baseball. He’s expected to lead off for New York in 2015. Manager Terry Collins has hinted, however, that he may bat him ninth after the pitcher from time to time.

Lagares won his first Gold Glove Award in 2014. In 116 games he hit .281 with four homers and 47 RBIs. He added 24 doubles and stole 13 bases.

The Dominican is having a very strong spring, batting .345 (19-for-55) with three home runs, six doubles, a triple and five walks.

Numerous media outlets are also reporting that Dillon Gee has beat out Rafael Montero for the fifth spot in the Mets’ starting rotation.

Gee was expected to enter the rotation when Zack Wheeler went down for the season, but Montero was brilliant this spring and forced Collins and general manager Sandy Alderson to make a decision.

Montero has a 2.40 ERA in 15 innings pitched this spring. He’s allowed just 11 hits and has displayed fantastic command, striking out 14 and walking two.

Gee held serve, however, impressing as well down in Florida. The right-hander has pitched to a 2.49 ERA in 21 2/3 innings. He hasn’t been as sharp as Montero, however, recording eight strikeouts and eight walks.

Montero will likely come out of the bullpen to start the season.
