CENTRAL ISLIP, N.Y. — A retired New York City police officer has been indicted on charges he drove drunk and caused a crash on Long Island that killed his passenger.
The Suffolk County district attorney’s office said 48-year-old Patrick McMahon, of Commack, was arraigned Thursday on aggravated vehicular homicide, manslaughter, driving while intoxicated and other charges.
Bail was set at $125,000 cash or $250,000 bond. He’s due back in court June 12. Information on his lawyer wasn’t immediately available.
Prosecutors say McMahon had left a nightclub in January and was driving home with two passengers when his vehicle mounted the curb and struck several trees before overturning on the front lawn of a residence.
Thirty-two-year-old backseat passenger, Steven Sarvis, of Ronkonkoma, was killed.
