Off-duty Suffolk PD officer accused of pointing gun at 3 women in Patchogue

Gregory Hanrahan, 32, pleaded not guilty for alleged incident on West Main Street


PATCHOGUE, N.Y. (AP) - An off-duty Suffolk County police officer has been arrested on charges he wrongfully pointed a gun at three women on a Patchogue street.

Gregory Hanrahan pleaded not guilty to three counts of menacing at his arraignment Tuesday. Defense attorney Sean Lenihan declined comment.

Suffolk County police say the 32-year-old who has been an officer for two years was suspended without pay and his guns were seized.

It was not immediately clear if the handgun allegedly used in the altercation was police-issued.

Police say the incident allegedly happened Nov. 5 at about 1:45 a.m. on West Main Street.

A prosecutor at the arraignment said Hanrahan allegedly made lewd remarks to the women before brandishing the handgun.

A judge issued orders of protection on behalf of the three women.
