An off-duty police officer has been accused of pulling his gun on a biker in a road-rage incident, a New York Criminal Lawyer reports. The cop, on the other hand, says he was merely taking out his ID – not a weapon.
The officer denies he ever drew his weapon in the heated Greenwich Village confrontation, sources told a New York Criminal Lawyer. Nonetheless, the 29-year-old cop from the 28th Precinct has been played on modified assignment, at least until the details of the incident are better known.
The biker, a 36-year-old salesman from the lower East Side, the cop aimed a gun at his face after the officer almost hit his bike on Bleecker Street. A police source who knew something about the incident told a New York Criminal Lawyer that the cop only identified himself as a police officer. Another source says the officer only pulled out his department ID card and never displayed his gun to the biker.
Being accused of a crime is terrible and being accused of a crime when innocent is even worse. A New York Criminal Lawyer is extremely important in times like those. To avoid going to prison or paying a fine, sometimes the best possible representation is needed. Not just any lawyer will suffice. Life-changing events require something more than the ordinary, or someone above the average who has both skill and deep knowledge of the law – someone like a Nassau County Criminal Lawyer.
