2 Tuckahoe cops suspended

Two Tuckahoe police officers have been suspended for their alleged roles in trying to cover up a drunken driving crash.

Sgt. John Cuccinello and officer Vincent Pinto are accused of letting a New York City cop go after he crashed his off-duty car into a lightpole last year.

That officer was allegedly drunk and given only property damage tickets.

Both Cuccinello and Pinto were docked thousands of dollars in overtime, but won't face any criminal charges.
