NYPD officer accused of firing at random car gets new court date

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (WABC) -- A New York City police officer facing attempted murder charges in Westchester County got a new court date Thursday.

Officer Brendan Cronin is accused of firing 14 bullets from his police weapon into a car stopped at a red light in Pelham in April.

He is expected to appear again in court Dec. 4, at which point the defense is required to produce results of psychological evaluation.

The passenger in the car was struck six times, while the driver was not hit. The judge denied a defense motion to dismiss the charges.

Cronin has pleaded not guilty to charges of attempted murder, assault and drunken driving.

Next court date December 4th. Defense has to produce results of psych evaluation. Then at the court appearance after that one, a trial date will be set.
