APD: Police Officer Arrested
Albany police arrested a 45 year old man Sunday morning for pointing a loaded handgun at a man on North Pearl Street.
On December 9, 2012, at approximately 3:45 a.m., officers assigned to the North Pearl Street Beat responded to North Pearl Street and Sheridan Avenue for a report of a man with a handgun. When officers arrived they located Kenneth Rosimini, 45, of Ravena, with a loaded .380 handgun in his back pocket. During the course of the investigation, officers learned that Rosimini, an off-duty Coxsackie Police Officer, had menaced an acquaintance with the gun.
Rosimini was charged with Criminal Possession of a Weapon 3rd and Menacing 2nd.
He was arraigned this morning in the Albany City Criminal Court. Bail was set at $5,000 dollars.
