Authorities say Gregory Hanrahan allegedly made "rude" remarks at the trio on West Main Street in Patchogue shortly before 2 a.m. on November 5, and then during the course of the exchange, pulled a gun from his waistband.
Officials say a Suffolk County police officer has been arrested and charged with menacing for an off-duty incident that occurred on November 5.
Gregory Hanrahan, 32, a two-year member assigned to the Seventh Precinct in Brookhaven Town, has been suspended without pay since November 7 and was forced to surrender his handguns, Suffolk County police said.
Hanrahan was charged with three counts of menacing in the second degree at his arraignment in Central Islip Tuesday. He pleaded not guilty and is being held in lieu of $4,500 bail.
