Off-duty NYPD officer faces gun charges in NJ

Posted: Updated:
WATCHUNG, N.J. (AP) — An off-duty officer with the New York City Police Department has been arrested in New Jersey.

Wanda Anthony, 43, of Staten Island was arrested Wednesday on charges of aggravated assault and unlawful weapons possession, the Somerset County Prosecutor's Office said.

Prosecutors said Anthony allegedly went to a Watchung residence with a man around 3:30 a.m. Wednesday and got into an altercation at the man's home with another woman. Police found shots fired into a car parked at the home.

It's not immediately known if Anthony, who posted $60,000 bail, has an attorney.

Police said Anthony was stopped in a vehicle after allegedly fleeing the scene. Police said she identified herself as an NYPD officer and refused a field sobriety test.

She was initially arrested on charges of driving while intoxicated.
