COP NAILED AS GIRLS' PIMP

A veteran NYPD detective and his girlfriend have been arrested on charges of pimping out teenage girls to perverts attending bachelor and strip parties, authorities said yesterday.
Detective Wayne Taylor was picked up Tuesday with his gal-pal madam in Jamaica, Queens, as they drove a 17-year-old girl to a hotel for a strip party and sex with several men, cops said.
The tip that led to their arrests came from a 13-year-old Bedford-Stuyvesant runaway who had also been pressed into service by Taylor and from another, unidentified pimp, according to authorities.
After returning home a few days ago, the Brooklyn girl told her parents, and then cops, that on Jan. 10, she met a pimp named "Drama" who got her into the business of dancing for money at parties, Queens DA Richard Brown said.
Drama took the girl to a madam named "Mommy Z," who "bought" the teen for $500, she told cops. Mommy Z turned out to be Taylor's girlfriend, Zelika Brown, 28, officials said.
Taylor, 35, a cop since 1994, and Brown, began bringing her to strip and bachelor parties, and the officer told her to say she was 19 if anyone asked, the DA said. Prices at the sordid soirees ran from $40 for oral sex to $80 for intercourse.
Brown, who has a tattoo on her back that reads "Wayne," allegedly told police she was running the prostitution business and Taylor would "watch out" for her while her girls were working. Taylor told cops that Brown just ran an "exotic dance" business.
The alleged madam at least once chastised the 13-year-old for not earning enough money and slammed her head into the floor, prosecutors said. Taylor allegedly told the victim that if she failed to earn more money or tried to leave his Jamaica home, he would force her to work on the streets.
It was only after the pair sold the teen to another pimp on Long Island that she ran away and eventually spoke to police.
She described Taylor's van, in which she'd been driven from party to party, and when cops spotted it they made the arrest.
Sources said Taylor, on modified assignment at the Housing Bureau for misusing an NYPD vehicle, had long been a target of Internal Affairs, which was probing allegations he was involved in drug activity.
His girlfriend was also already under investigation - by the FBI for "human trafficking," law-enforcement sources said.
Taylor and Brown are charged with promoting prostitution, endangering the welfare of a child, kidnapping and unlawful imprisonment. They were held last night in lieu of $250,000 bail each. Lawyers for both denied the charges.
A third suspect, Krystal Tudy, 18 - who wears a "Mommy Z" tattoo - was charged with promoting prostitution and held in lieu of $50,000 bail.
