A story proving that even police officers are too grabby with their guns. Last year, off-duty police officer Bernard Marti got into an argument with Victor Mendoza at Financial District pizza restaurant Cordato's. Apparently, Mendoza knocked over Marti's beer, so Marti took out his service revolver. Mendoza pushed it away and then Marti "accidentally" shot Mendoza in the thigh. Marti ran to his car, only to be caught by police officers doing homeless outreach work.
The Post reports that now Marti must pay for Mendoza's hospital bills and the misdemeanor assault charges against him will be dropped. Marti, who was suspended after the incident, is now retired from the NYPD.
