Suffolk County cop Gregory Hanrahan 32 was charged with three counts of menacing

A Suffolk County police officer was arrested Tuesday morning, charged with menacing after he pointed a handgun at three women in Patchogue early November 5, police said.

An off-duty Long Island police officer has been arrested on charges he wrongfully pointed a gun at three women on a Patchogue street, officials said. They say the group exchanged "rude words" on the sidewalk at 1:44 a.m., which prompted Hanrahan to pull his gun from his waistband and point it at the group.

Hanrahan, a two-year member of the department assigned to the Seventh Precinct, was charged with menacing. He pleaded not guilty and is being held in lieu of $4,500 bail. An internal investigation is also underway. "These allegations are extremely disturbing and will never be tolerated", Assistant Police Commissioner Justin Meyers said. "This type of misconduct is taken very seriously and was vigorously investigated by the Suffolk County Police Department". The officer is married and has a 2-year-old daughter.

A judge issued orders of protection on behalf of the three women.
