Lynbrook Man Gets Six Years for East Meadow Slashing

After being denied entrance into RC Dugans, King slashed a bouncer with a sharp object, police said.

A Lynbrook man has been sentenced to six years in prison for slashing a bouncer at in East Meadow, according to the Nassau County District Attorney's office.

According to officials, in February of 2010, Thomas King, 21, got into an argument with a security guard because he was denied entrance due to being underage. After one of the bouncers followed King to the parking lot, King slashed the bouncer three times with a sharp object, according to police.

The victim suffered severe lacerations to the top of his head, right side of his face and left side of his neck, with caused permanent scarring. King was arrested by Nassau County Police on March 9, 2010.

On Feb. 4, King was convicted for second-degree assault and fifth-degree possession of a weapon. King is represented by Michael DerGarabedian, Esq.

“Thomas King’s propensity for violence made today’s sentence inevitable, and the streets of Nassau County are safer with him locked in a prison cell,” Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice said. “The victim in this case was only following the law. This defendant will have the next six years to think about why he didn’t do the same.”
