RENSSELAER - The Mayor of Rensselaer says Police Officer Mark Fusco is now off the Rensselaer Police force.

In March of last year, Fusco was charged with driving drunk and killing his passenger.

The accident that killed Sean Murphy happened on Route 151 in East Greenbush.

Police say Fusco had a blood alcohol level more than twice the legal limit when he crashed his car into two trees.

Fusco is the son of Rensselaer Police Chief Rick Fusco.
