    Brooklyn, NY – New York City Police Commissioner William Bratton says an off-duty officer arrested on manslaughter and DWI charges after a Brooklyn crash has been fired.

    Bratton announced the termination of Nicholas Batka on Wednesday. He previously had been suspended.

    Batka’s attorney did not immediately return a call seeking comment on the termination.

    The SUV crash early Saturday in Williamsburg claimed the life of a pedestrian, 21-year-old Andrew Esquivel, and seriously injured three of his friends.

    Esquivel, a native of Healdsburg, California, attended the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He had an internship at a New York City company.

    Bratton said two other off-duty officers who were with Batka have been stripped of their guns and shields while the investigation continues.
