Cop quits after allegedly pulling gun on N. Pearl Street
COXSACKIE -- An off-duty Coxsackie Police officer that was arrested for pointing a loaded handgun at a man on North Pearl Street last year is now off the force.
Coxsackie Mayor Mark Evans said 46-year-old Kenneth Rosimini of Ravena resigned on Thursday from his part-time position with the department on Thursday.
Rosimini was arrested in Decemeber 2012 by Albany Police after a call came in that a man with a gun had pointed it at another man. When Albany officers arrived on North Pearl and Sheridan Avenue, they say Rosimini was carrying a loaded .380 handgun in his back pocket and had pointed it at another man.
He was charged with criminal possession of a weapon and menacing.
Before he was arrested, Rosimini had been out on workers comp for a back injury since March 2012.
Mayor Evans said Rosimini was put on unpaid leave following his arrest and the town had filed charges against him with the intent to terminate him.
A disciplinary hearing was scheduled to take place next week regarding those charges filed by the town, but because Rosimini resigned before the hearing, Evans said the town "considers the matter closed."
Rosimini is still facing those charges in Albany. He is expected to be back in court to answer to them at a later date.
