A Lengthy Island man says an area police commissioner threatened to shoot him earlier than throwing a sucker punch that bloodied his nostril in an unprovoked road-rage explosion.
Kevin Holian, 64, alleged Friday that Lengthy Seashore Police Commissioner Michael Tangney misplaced his thoughts Tuesday after wrongfully pulling him over for operating a cease signal.
“He received out of his automotive screaming at me to get again in my automotive or ‘I’ll shoot you,’” stated Holian. “There was nothing to determine him or his automobile as a police officer.”
Tangney, a 40-year Lengthy Seashore police veteran, was enraged, swearing and honking his horn at Holian as the person drove dwelling from visiting his 90-year-old mom in a Lengthy Seashore, L.I., nursing dwelling.
“As I reached for the glove compartment to retrieve my registration, I felt a pointy ache to the left of my face,” Holian charged Friday.
Tangney instructed Newsday that he by no means laid a hand on Holian, including that he hoped the opposite driver would face costs for submitting a bogus grievance.
