It looks like NYPD will have an opening soon. One Queens karaoke bar regular, a New York police sergeant in his day job, involved himself in a dispute with fellow patrons at 5a.m. Monday morning. Seems the men didn’t tip their waitresses and Sgt. Raymond Wong sought to right the wrong as a “white knight.”
Things went sideways for the him when the three other patrons told Mr. Wong to mind his own damned business. Things escalated and the argument turned physical. Pretty soon Sgt. Wong found himself on the receiving end of a little rough bar justice. That’s when Wong drew his GLOCK and fired three shots at the men.
Being a representative member of the NYPD’s finest, he missed. With all three rounds.
The New York Post has the story:
The three men, two 38-year-olds and a 37-year-old, were arrested, the sources said. Charges against them were pending, cops said.
Wong was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. He was arrested Monday night and charged with two counts of assault, police said.
Wong was suspended without pay following the incident. His poor marksmanship may have saved him from a lengthy prison term. Maybe (soon-to-be former?) Sgt. Wong can apply for a job ensuring gun safety on Alec Baldwin’s next New York City film project.
