Lawyer Calls Officers Reckless In N.Y. Cabbie Shooting

February 28, 2011  | 

A Long Island cabbie drove his vehicle into two Nassau County (N.Y.) Police officers, who returned fire to keep from being struck, the New York Daily News reported.

Thomas Moroughan, 26, pulled off the road at 1:15 a.m. on Sunday and parked behind the officers. After arguing with the off-duty officers, Moroughan drove his vehicle toward them. One officer fired, striking Moroughan in the chest and arm.

The two officers were not seriously injured.

On Monday, the Long Island attorney representing Moroughan said the officers acted reckelessly, reports the Long Island Press.

"The off-duty officer was driving recklessly, placing anyone on road in danger," attorney William Petrillo told the Associated Press. "This led to a verbal dispute, which ultimately led to an inexperienced officer who had not identified himself firing multiple shots into the taxi cab, striking Mr. Moroughan twice," the attorney said.
