New York City: Bradley Beamer is making headlines. The off-duty NYPD sergeant who reportedly threatened a cyclist with a gun was once a darling of media and officials.
To be true, the accolades that came his way in the past were genuine as Bradley Beamer reportedly rescued two boys from a fire. He was honored for his bravado.
But now the same cop is facing severe criticism for what he did to a cyclist. He not just threatened the cyclist with a gun, but also showed him off his bike with brutal force.
Reports suggest that the 40-year-old NYPD sergeant has been charged in an alleged case of road rage involving a U-turn and a bicyclist in Queens. Authorities claim that an off-duty Beamer driving in Long Island City Wednesday when he went to make a U-turn and almost hit a bicyclist. This caused the two to get involved in an argument.
An infuriated NYPD sergeant allegedly flashed his department-issued weapon. Later, a complaint was filed and the cop was taken into custody for menacing, assault and harassment.
