NY parole officer cleared of charges in gun-brandishing incident
New York State parole officer Eugene Deal had been charged with aggravated assault
By Kibret Markos
A New York State parole officer was cleared Wednesday of charges that he rushed to a Teaneck parking lot while his car was being towed and drew his gun on the tow-truck operator.
"Justice delayed don't mean justice denied," a beaming Eugene Deal said outside a courtroom in Superior Court in Hackensack, after a judge ended his bench trial by finding him not guilty of aggravated assault.
