Woodmere Man Arrested for Menacing in Manhasset

Defendant allegedly drove his car toward a code enforcement officer in parking lot.

A Woodmere man was arrested on Tuesday after he allegedly drove his car toward a code enforcement officer in Manhasset twice and made death threats at him, according to police.

Detectives said that the victim, a 50-year-old code enforcement officer for the Village of Manhasset, was forced on two occasions to “jump between parked cars” in Parking Lot #4 after Andrew Bass, 59, allegedly accelerated towards him. The victim recognized Bass from a previous incident in which he issued a ticket to Bass, and Bass allegedly made threats to the officer’s life.

After a follow up investigation by detectives, Bass was contacted and asked to come to the Third Precinct, where he was placed under arrest on Tuesday at 10:10 a.m.

Bass is charged with second-degree menacing, second-degree reckless endangerment and obstructing governmental administration in the second degree. He will be arraigned on Oct. 17 in First District Court in Hempstead.

He should have arrested the code enforcement officer for perjury. They know, or have a duty to know, that they can not issue parking summonses unless proper signs are posted (Vehicle and Traffic Law, section 1683 (8)). While the officer was in custody, he should have allowed the public to tar and feather him, the traditionally sanctioned method of dealing with official corruption.

I agree with Eugene, I am sure the servant code enforcer is lying in his attempt to revenue generate for the corrupt local governments.
