NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say an off-duty New York City police officer has been arrested on a reckless endangerment charge after firing his gun during an argument outside his apartment in New Rochelle.

It happened on Lincoln Avenue just after 1 a.m. Saturday. Nobody was hurt.

Flowers was arrested at his apartment shortly after the incident. Information on his lawyer was not immediately available. The NYPD says the three-year veteran has been suspended.

On Tuesday, another off-duty NYPD police officer was arrested following a shooting in Pelham. Police say 27-year-old Brendan Cronin randomly shot and wounded a man six times while the victim sat in a car at a traffic light.
