Former Cop Arrested

Former Harrison Cop Tancredi Arrested
The Journal News by Gerald McKinstry - August 15, 2010

PORT CHESTER, NY — A former Harrison police officer with a history of trouble is facing drug-possession and impersonation charges after an apparent altercation at a village bar. Ralph Tancredi, a former Harrison PBA president who ran for town supervisor and was fired by the town last year, is being held without bail in Westchester County jail after an incident outside an Adee Street bar. Police told News 12 that Tancredi was found with the powerful painkiller Oxycontin, another unidentified drug and a forged Harrison police identification card. Port Chester police would say only that they charged Tancredi with criminal possession of a controlled substance, impersonating a police officer, forgery and disorderly conduct. Tancredi was arrested Saturday by Port Chester police and arraigned in Village Court. Tancredi's legal troubles go back several years when he got into a bar scuffle and was accused of harassing a girlfriend before being suspended with pay in 2007. He was eventually fired in 2009. He had sued the Harrison Police Department several times alleging civil rights violations, and this year the state approved his 207-c disability pension.
