CASE #3

PISTOL LICENSEE FAILS TO NOTIFY THE PISTOL LICENSE DIVISION OF TWO SEPARATE ARRESTS FOR ASSAULT AND HARASSMENT

LICENSE REVOKED 

 

Pistol licensee is falsely accused of assaulting and harassment of his ex-girlfriend. The truth was: licensee comes home from a NY Yankee game

at about 1:00am with another woman and his ex is waiting at licensee's doorstep. He tells his current girlfriend to drive home, and he will handle the situation.

When he tries to get into his house, he is attacked by his ex-girlfriend, who neighbors said had been waiting for the licensee for hours. The licensee

tries to call the police on his cellular phone, his ex grabs it and hits him with it. When the police come, she lies about what happened and HE is the one arrested.  

She has him arrested a second time a week later, as she claims he violated the ORDER OF PROTECTION.

 

The licensee fails to notify the Pistol License Divison of these TWO arrests, and the TWO Orders of Protection issued against him. As a consequence,

licensee's pistol license was revoked.

 

John S. Chambers, Esquire, represents this licensee in an Administrative Hearing before the New York City Police Department, Pistol License Division.

License CONTINUED due to Chambers' law firm's representation of licensee.
