Former Bloomberg Bodyguard Didn’t Mention Shooting Guy in Butt

NEW YORK, NY - APRIL 25: New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg speaks at a news conference at City Hall where they announced that the two men accused of carrying out last week's bombing of the Boston Marathon planned an additional bomb attack on New York's Times Square on April 25, 2013 in New York City. In interrogations with younger brother Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, police have learned that the two had planned to take the car that they hijacked and its driver from Boston last Thursday night and to New York with bombs. The plan was foiled after the car ran low on gas and the two brothers got into a firefight with police. (Photo by Spencer Platt/Getty Images)

After dropping off Georgina Bloomberg from a Knicks game in 2010 as a member of the mayor’s security team, NYPD officer Leopold McLean admitted in court yesterday that he shot at his girlfriend’s pesky ex, who may have had a knife, hitting him in the behind. “Looking back now, I should have told them I fired my weapon,” he understated. “I didn’t report the shooting because I didn’t want the focus to be on me or the unit.” What happens off duty stays off duty, except when it’s really illegal.
