On April 19, Oliver Wiggins was driving his Nissan Maxima on Glenwood road when he was suddenly t-boned by an NYPD cop. The officer was driving without his flashing lights and did not have on his siren when he blew through a stop sign and plowed into Wiggins.

In typical police fashion, the officer, instead of apologizing and admitting he made a mistake, treated Wiggins as if it were his fault. The officer accused Wiggins of being drunk. He was then arrested and charged with DUI.

Wiggins, knowing full well that he wasn’t drinking, submitted to a blood test. The results showed his blood alcohol content to be zero. The test also showed that there were no traces of drugs in his system either.

Wiggins has since hired an attorney who is requesting an investigation into the incident.

“We believe this arrest was improper and solely motivated to cover up the actions of the police officers in failing to yield at a stop sign,” said lawyer Scott Rynecki.

Despite the negative blood tests, the charges were not dropped until last week.

“I think the whole thing was insane,” Wiggins told the Daily News. “They ran a stop sign and I think they were trying to hide that they caused the accident.”

“I have never been in handcuffs in my life,” Wiggins said. “I’ve lost my trust in police. It’s scary they can frame an innocent person.”
