Officer Had Sex In Police Station With Other Cop's Wife

The police board released documentation yesterday of officers who'd been reprimanded, one of whom is ex-Sergeant Nicholas M. Ortega, who was fired for having sex in his office and wearing his uniform in a bar. Turns out it was one big incident, and the woman Ortega slept with was a rookie cop's wife.

From the S-T:

Ortega was in uniform toward the end of his shift when he stopped in the Grand Central Station bar in the 5700 block of West Grand. The rookie, a probationary officer, was at the bar and introduced Ortega to his wife.

Ortega, who was near the end of his midnight shift, invited the woman back to the station to see a morning roll call and drove her in his squad car, the police board found. Ortega, 46, admitted to having sex with the woman in the station.
