Detective Caught on Camera Rolling Dice Stripped of Badge: Report

A New York City police detective seen on camera rolling dice in uniform with several people in the Bronx has been stripped of his badge and gun, the NBC New York investigative team has learned.

The NYPD said David Terrell of the 42nd Precinct is off active patrol and on modified assignment in the Manhattan court system, but didn't comment specifically on the dice incident or the specific reason he was placed on modified duty.

Terrell's modified assignment also comes as several young men in the Bronx told the I-Team he and other officers in the 42nd precinct falsified arrests and coerced witnesses to lie in criminal cases.
