The former head of the city's firefighters union faces DWI and drug charges after his car jumped a curb while he was intoxicated in Manhattan, police said.
The city police department said Wednesday that Steve Cassidy was driving in Midtown around 11:55 p.m. the night before, when he jumped a curb at 30th St. and 7th Ave.
When police arrived, they said the 62-year-old intoxicated, and they said they found cocaine inside his vehicle.
Cassidy was the longest-serving president of the Uniformed Firefighters Association before he joined the Fire Pension Fund in 2016.
Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro, who appointed Cassidy, has removed Cassidy from his position as the pension fund's executive director in light of the incident.
