Bronx News Roundup, Feb. 25

Is this the New York Times article we've all been waiting for? The paper published a piece yesterday about a domestic violence case in Bronx Family Court that involved one of Gov. David Paterson's top aides, and raised a number of questions about what role the governor might have played in the mess. The woman who filed the charges claims she was violently attacked by Paterson staffer David W. Johnson. Here is an excerpt of her court transcript, where she claims State Police harassed her about dropping the charges.

And in another incident, an aide to Rev. Al Sharpton was charged with assault after getting into a "cat fight" with another woman at her boyfriend's Mott Haven apartment.

Chase is opening a mortgage crisis center in Parkchester today. Bronx homeowners who are struggling to make payments can seek advice at 1480 East Avenue, or call 718-678-8880.

The Park's Department has named Mill Pond Park, at East 149th and Exterior Street, as February's "park of the month." Mill Pond Park opened last fall as part of the Yankee Stadium Redevelopment Project, which has also sparked a discussion about the possibility of building a new ice skating rink, as the Riverdale Press reports today. 

An NYPD officer from Parkchester was charged with DWI and suspended without pay after a crash in Throgs Neck on Sunday. Roniel Dilone is one of a number of cops recently been busted for driving drunk.

A woman who falsely accused a Bronx man of rape back in 2005--sending William McCaffrey to prison for almost four years before admitting she'd lied--was sentenced to one to three years behind bars yesterday for perjury.

Two bodies were found in an apartment in Wakefield on Tuesday.

A Bronx man was arrested on Long Island yesterday after spending counterfeit $100 bills at a Target in Nassau County.
