TOWN OF FALLSBURG – Town of Fallsburg Police Officer Lawrence Danglewicz is suspended without pay for 30 days following his arrest in the United Kingdom.

Danglewicz, 35, a resident of Accord, was charged late last month with using a racially abusive term aimed at a cabbie while he was on vacation.

Fallsburg Police Chief Simmie Williams told Mid-Hudson News on Tuesday that a hearing will be held followed by a determination as to the officer’s future on the force.

After he was charged in England, Danglewicz offered an apology to the cab driver, who he accused of taking a long way to his destination. He said he had been drinking, was drunk and felt embarrassed by his verbal outburst.

The officer was fined the equivalent of a little less than US$2,800.
