This is the guy who pushed over the bicyclist in Times Square. Pogan was convicted of filing false statements (saying that he was assaulted by the victim). Pogan was also convicted of a misdemeanor for attesting to the complaint's truthfulness.
Patrick Pogan, who was only on the job for 11 days, was acquitted on assault charges. Judging from the video, he looked guilty to me. But police should be given benefits of doubt on use of force. And I wasn't in the court room or on the jury. So I'll pipe down on the assault charge. The important thing is that Pogan was convicted and won't be getting his job back. Good riddance to him. The NYPD can do better.
