News 12 Interactive (1/16/14)

THE BRONX - An NYPD detective is facing a number of charges, more than a year after police say he went on a hit-and-run rampage in the Bronx.

According to investigators, Detective Carlos Sierra drove a red Toyota Sienna minivan in the wrong direction in the westbound lane of East 174th Street back in Nov. 2012.

They say Sierra sideswiped a parked car, hit two people in another vehicle and kept driving. He allegedly ended up in a dispute and attacked the other driver, Willie Delacrus, before fleeing the scene and failing to report the accident.
