The intoxicated NYPD sergeant booted from a Greyhound bus last month has been suspended without pay, according to reports Sunday.

Sgt. Carlos Fabara was off-duty when he caused a scene on a bus headed for New York from Philadelphia on Dec. 27.

A video posted on YouTube shows a driver on the bus trying to haul Fabara off despite his resistance, then Philadelphia police being called in.

"Things are about to get ugly in here," a voice on the video says.

When Philly police cuff Fabara, a voice -- presumably Fabara's -- is heard repeatedly saying, "I'm not resisting."

According to reports, the officer was on the bus with a friend, and the two were visibly drunk.

Fabara faced no criminal charges, according to the New York Post.

In 2006, the Daily News reported Fabara had 13 civilian complaints -- the most of any officer that year.

A spokesman for the NYPD could not confirm the report as of press time.
