Motorist indicted for racist road rage knife attack
A motorist who falsely claimed to be a state trooper is now indicted on hate crime charges - after threatening a Black, off-duty police officer with a knife during a racist road rage incident.
William Ryan, 60, was caught on video brandishing a knife, giving the middle finger and yelling racial slurs at Wallkill Lieutenant Robert Mclymore earlier this month.
Mclymore is a pastor of a church in Newburgh and was headed there with his teenage son when it happened.
Ryan remains in Orange County jail and is expected to be arraigned in Orange County Supreme Court sometime this week.
