An off-duty Yonkers police officer was arrested on Friday, June 23, after he allegedly broke a car windshield and put a woman in a chokehold after a night on the town in Pleasantville.
Trevor Goff, 27, of Yonkers, turned himself into Pleasantville police where he was charged with three misdemeanor charges for the events that took place on Friday, June 16, Pleasantville police Lt. Jesse Wollman said.
The first incident occurred 2:50 a.m. when police received a report of a man jumping on a windshield, shattering it, in front of the Thirsty Scholar Pub at 472 Bedford Road, said Wollman.
According to court filings, Goff had gone into the bar and was thrown out by a bar employee. He then jumped on the windshield of the car parked outside the bar, shattering it.
Police said they received the second call regarding Goff around 4:20 a.m. on Martling Avenue when a woman called and said that during a domestic dispute he had put her in a chokehold, blocking her airway, police said.
Goff then got in his truck and drove away, police said.
Following his arrest, Goff was charged with criminal obstruction of breathing or blood circulation, petty larceny, and fourth-degree criminal mischief. He was arraigned in Village Court on June 23 and released.
Goff is on administrative duty until the case is resolved.
