Five DWI Cases Thrown Out After Judges Rule NYPD Set Up Illegal Checkpoints

A Queens judge tossed out a driving while intoxicated arrest after ruling that NYPD officers created an illegal checkpoint in order to force the driver to stop — the fifth such case to be overturned since 2012, DNAinfo New York has learned.

 

Queens Criminal Court Judge David M. Hawkins ruled last week to dismiss charges against a defendant caught in a 2011 drunken driving sting by NYPD Highway Patrol officers on the grounds that the officers set up an unconstitutional checkpoint on a small service road that connects the Long Island Expressway to the Grand Central Parkway in Flushing.
