The head of the FDNY Pension Fund—and the former president of the firefighters' union—was fired after he was arrested for drunk driving in midtown Manhattan on Tuesday night.

Steve Cassidy "was traveling on Seventh Avenue in Midtown when he lost control of his Toyota Prius and mounted the sidewalk near West 30th Street about 11:55 p.m. Tuesday," sources told the NY Post. "The 62-year-old Kips Bay resident crashed into a dumpster, which then struck a nearby storefront and damaged the building, according to sources. He narrowly missed hitting pedestrians."

He was also allegedly found with cocaine.

An FIT student filmed Cassidy
being helped into a police van after he crashed his car. Jakob Grabel said, "He was sitting in the driver’s seat just kind of dazzed and confused as to what was going on."

Grabel added, "He got out of the car and tried to walk off, but two good Samaritans stopped him. I called 911. He was mumbling gibberish, not speaking any proper English."

Grabel's video shows Cassidy getting into the van with difficulty.

The Daily News reports that a prosecutor said Cassidy told a witness that he had too much to drink and claimed that he wanted to punch someone in the face.

Cassidy pleaded not guilty to the charges. The News' sources say that Cassidy recently had double knee surgery and had taken medication before drinking.

In 2016, Cassidy was appointed by FDNY Commissioner Daniel Nigro to run the New York City Fire Pension Fund , after 14 years as the head of the Uniformed Firefighters Association.
