All Manuel Peralta wanted was a Coors Light. For free. And when he didn’t get one, the off-duty corrections officer pulled a gun on Liffy II Bar owner/bartender Kirby Mannix, Mannix alleges.
Five cops on the scene decided not to arrest Peralta. Why not? “I don’t think a crime was committed,” said one of the officers.
Now, there’s an NYPD internal affairs investigation and a criminal investigation into Peralta’s behavior.
“It appears they are covering up for some guy who is licensed to carry a gun. He came in here and pulled a gun for no reason,” said Mannix. “He’s a danger to the general public,” he added.
