Occupy Wall Street poster villain and viral video star Anthony Bologna, the NYPD Deputy Inspector who pepper-sprayed a woman because he felt like it, was found in violation of department guidelines (see Code Section 819B: "No officer should act like a power-drunk psychopath within 50 meters of a visual recording device"). His punishment? 10 days of vacation, docked.
Meanwhile, the victim, 24-year-old Kaylee Dedrick, is continuing with her plan to press charges. According to her lawyer, she wants him to be charged with misdemeanor assault, which would be get a sentence of probation and court-ordered anger management classes.
Bologna hasn't yet decided if he'll accept the department's decision or appeal. Through a union spokesman, he issued this statement of deep bummed-out-edness:
"Deputy Inspector Bologna is disappointed at the results of the Department investigation. His actions prevented further injury and escalation of tumultuous conduct," said Roy Richter, president of the NYPD Captains Endowment Association.
