WILLIAMSBURG — An off-duty police lieutenant was arrested and suspended for leaving the scene of an accident and failing to stop at a stop sign, police said.

Elton Cohn was arrested Thursday evening at 5:10 p.m., police said. He was also charged with “failing to exercise due care.”

The arrest stemmed from a July 19 incident in which Cohn struck a female pedestrian at Knickerbocker Avenue and Grattan Street, leaving her with minor injuries, a police spokesman said. Cohn fled the scene, police said, but a subsequent investigation linked him to the accident.

NYPD lieutenant Elton Cohn was arrested Oct. 4, 2012 for leaving the scene of an accident and failing to stop at a stop sign, police said.

Police did not indicate Cohn’s precinct. A city government website described Cohn as a highly-decorated officer who was once named Community Officer of the Year.

    This cop was working a long time in the 90th precinct and had a “Good” relationship with the Shomrim, and did a lot of “Favors” for them.

    Now would be a good time to expose him, those that were threatens by him
