There is outrage over a police fundraiser for an officer who is charged with reckless homicide in an alleged drunk driving case.Protestors went to the Area one detective division on Wednesday night where they say the host of the event is stationed.

The fundraiser is scheduled for Friday at the Fraternal Order of Police hall but is not sponsored by the FOP.

The FOP does confirm that friends of Detective Joe Frugoli rented the hall.

Last March, Frugoli was allegedly driving drunk when he crashed into another vehicle, killing Fausto Manzara and Andrew Casares.

Frugoli was stripped of his police powers, is not getting paid, and was released on bond.
