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.

The 11 counts against Sierra range from assault to reckless driving. He's due back in court March 3.
