NYPD disciplined its fifth high-ranking officer in the wake of the ongoing FBI corruption scandal.

Deputy Chef Andrew Capul, 56, was “reassigned to an administrative position pending further review,” according to an NYPD statement published by the New York Daily News.  [2]

Capul often frequented the Hudson River Cafe, where the owner, Hamlet Peralta, is under investigation and has been charged with running a $12 million Ponzi scheme.

Capul’s discipline is the latest move by NYPD following the widening corruption investigation centered around businessmen Jona Rechnitz and Jeremy Reichberg, who are accused of giving expensive gifts in exchange for police escorts and street closures for funerals and weddings.
