An off-duty cop has been arrested for an early morning DWI in Brooklyn where he fatally struck down a woman who had just left a wedding. Witnesses say Officer Andrew Kelly made no effort to slow down as his Jeep Grand Cherokee crashed into 33-year-old Veronica Valnore just after midnight in Marine Park. Valnore was trying to catch a cab after leaving a wedding at Floyd Bennett American Legion. She is said to have been pronounced dead soon after cops arrived at the scene.
Valnore's father is the pastor at the Church of God in Marine Park and she is said to have devoted much of her time to Bible study and the Haitian congregation's social programs. Kelly was taken into custody, but charges have not been announced. He works out of the 68th Precinct in Bay Ridge.
