Off-duty N.Y. officer arrested after shooting at girlfriend's door

The Associated Press   

NEW YORK- An off-duty police officer fired 11 bullets into his girlfriend's door and was arrested on charges including reckless endangerment, police said.

Joel Rodriguez, 26, was undergoing a psychological evaluation at St. Vincent's Manhattan hospital early Monday, said police Officer Martin Speechley. No one was injured in the attack, he said.

The off-duty officer was arrested on charges of criminal possession of a weapon, criminal mischief and reckless endangerment following the Sunday morning incident, police said.

It was unclear what prompted the barrage at the home near the Red Hook section of Brooklyn, Speechley said.
