State Senator Kevin Parker, who faces felony charges after assaulting a NY Post photographer, breaking his camera and bashing his car in, told reporters yesterday, "I don't think I have an anger issue. Hopefully this will be a bad memory." However, the State Police were aware of Parker's testy behavior last week when he "got out of his car at an entrance to a parking garage beneath the state Capitol complex and angrily confronted a security guard" because a gate wasn't raised, according to the Post. Parker was stripped of his leadership position as the Democrats' whip by Majority Leader Malcolm Smith; Parker said he backed Smith's decision, "It was the right thing to do. My personal problems cannot be a distraction to the Senate. We have a lot of work to do between now and the end of session." The Brooklyn lawmaker has previously attended anger management class for punching a traffic agent and was accused of choking and breaking the glasses of a female staffer.
