Disciplinary hearing continues against Mamaroneck police officer

The Mamaroneck Police Department has charged Officer Jeremy Skehan with providing false information to the Westchester District Attorney's Office about an alleged arrest in May. Skehan was suspended without pay after giving the DA a detailed report about a 17-year-old girl, who he says was allegedly arrested for DWI without any evidence.

During the village hearing, Skehan's attorney and police lawyers argued over various pieces of evidence. The argument drew not only the ire of the village board, but also the residents in attendance. Some residents say they have been to all three of Skehan's hearings, and they say the proceedings are simply a waste of taxpayer dollars.

The next hearing is scheduled for November 5. Skehan has also filed a civil suit against his superiors and the Village of Mamaroneck.
