” An off-dufy NYPD cop was arrested for allegedly threatening a motorist with his gun following a dispute at a red light in Queens, police said.
Officer Philip Case, 49, who was slapped with a menacing charge, got into an argument with another man at the corner of Van Doren Street and 108th Street in Corona about 10:15 p.m. Friday, authorities said.
With both cars stopped, Case flashed his gun and then sped off once the light turned green, cops said.
The victim called police and Chase was arrested a block away.
It’s unclear what prompted the argument, but police said both Chase and the victim remained in their vehicles during the confrontation.
Chase was released after getting a desk appearance ticket for the offense.”
