De Blasio called about case of arrested pastor

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) - Mayor Bill de Blasio called a top police official to inquire about the arrest of a New York City pastor who endorsed him and was arrested earlier this week.

A spokesman for de Blasio said Tuesday the mayor called NYPD Deputy Chief Kim Royster Monday and asked whether Bishop Orlando Findlayter had been arrested that night.

Royster is the commanding officer of the department's press office. She says Findlayter was pulled over around 11:30 p.m. Monday for failing to signal. She says he had two open warrants from arrests he received at a protest last October.

She says the commanding officer of the 67th Precinct in Brooklyn issued Findlayter a desk appearance ticket and released him. Findlayter couldn't be reached for comment.

The Wall Street Journal first reported the case.

    "A mixed bag": That's how the Straphangers Campaign characterizes New York City subways; some good parts and some bad. For example, the C train breaks down most often, not surprising since the line has 50-year-old cars. But C trains were also the cleanest in the transit system.Straphangers said the worst subway trains were the IRT's No. 2.
