Unbe-weavable! This excuse rates up there with “the dog ate my homework.”

Tracy Gittens, a sergeant with the New York Police Department, claims she failed a drug test for marijuana because of her weave.

Gittens has a plum assignment as part of the personal security detail for Chirlane McCray, the African-American wife of NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio.

In January 2017, Gittens was suspended without pay for 30 days after failing a random drug test. Gittens, 42, has since been on paid desk duty as she awaits a departmental trial.

She has maintained her innocence all along, claiming that a strand from her weave — which is made of human hair — tested positive for pot.

She says the hair (which testers allegedly snipped from the back of her head) was not hers. Gittens claims if her own hair had been tested, she would have passed.

Meanwhile, Gittens’ NYPD colleagues don’t buy her hair-brained excuse. “Oh stop! it doesn’t even pass the laugh test,” one police source told the New York Post. “That’s one of the lamest excuses I’ve ever heard. What people will do to save their jobs is pathetic.”

Another cop chimed in: “She should have said upfront that is not my real hair so they could take the hair from somewhere else. I’ve heard every excuse, but those tests are 100% accurate.”

It’s not surprising that Tracy Gittens is desperately trying to hang on to her cushy gig. Gittens, who joined the NYPD in 2002, made $133,649 in 2016, including $48,997 in overtime, according to public records. The security detail for the mayor’s wife is one of the coveted assignments at the NYPD.

Meanwhile, NYC’s communist Mayor Bill de Blasio is under fire after suggesting he may tear down the city’s iconic statue of Italian explorer Christopher Columbus.

Italian-Americans are furious at the suggestion. Comedian Joe Piscopo said de Blasio is in for a rude awakening if he thinks he’ll get away with that baloney.

“That statue at Columbus Circle in New York, it ain’t coming down,” Piscopo said. “We [Italians] are not going down, and neither is that statue … If you have time to tear down a statue, you have too much time on your hands.”
