NYPD Cop, Ex-Cop Going on Trial in Beating

NYPD cop, ex-cop going on trial in Yonkers beating
The Journal News by Rebecca Baker - April 27, 2009

YONKERS, NY - A New York City police officer and two other men will go on trial today in a brawl that seriously hurt a Yonkers man outside of two McLean Avenue bars in 2007. Jury selection was set to start this morning in Yonkers City Court for NYPD Officer Michael McGhee, former NYPD Officer Thomas Wimmer and their friend Patrick Tully of the Bronx. All three men are charged with third-degree assault, a misdemeanor, in a fight with 26-year-old Peter Cummins in front of Fagan's Ale House and Rockin' Robins Bar and Night Club in September 2007. The fight allegedly started when Tully said something to the victim's girlfriend that she deemed derogatory. Cummins suffered severe facial injuries, authorities said. Two other NYPD officers accused of trying to cover up the involvement of a fellow officer, struck a plea agreement to avoid a trial. Officers Jeffrey Alicea and Stella Ibanez pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct, a violation, and the misdemeanor official misconduct charges were dropped. Assistant District Attorney Heide Mason is prosecuting the case.
