NJ Police Captain Allegedly Gambled, Skied on State Time
A suspended police captain for a New Jersey state agency has been accused of filing fraudulent timesheets -- going on ski trips, gambling in Atlantic City and performing personal consulting work while claiming he was working.
A nine-count indictment handed up Friday in state court in Trenton against 50-year-old Brian Brady also accuses him of using a state vehicle, state gas card and state-issued E-ZPass on some of the personal trips.
Brady, a former mayor of Sparta, was suspended from his $101,000-a-year job with the New Jersey Human Services Police when charges were first brought last year. He has denied any wrongdoing.
He is also accused of falsely claiming he had re-qualified for firearm use and of wrongly using police databases for personal reasons. Charges include official misconduct and theft by deception.
